    The Eleutherodactylus frog is one of the smallest known frogs to date. It is a relatively recent discovery as it was found and identified in and as of yet does not have a universal or common household name as many other frog species do, though in some areas it is known as the Coqui. fitzingeri, a terrestrial frog native to Central America, continue to persist in Bd-positive environments in Panama. My study focused on identifying antifungal bacterial isolates and determining the culturability of the bacterial community on 15 individuals of C. fitzingeri.

    A second means by which Eleutherodactylus frogs may have dispersed in Hawaii is by intentional transport to establish new populations. In at least one case, a nursery owner with a con-spicuous population of calling frogs allowed individuals inter km E. planirostris species unknown The Main Hawaiian Islands o 20km E. coqui E. planirostris.

ALTHOUGH the neotropical frog genus Eleutherodactylus (approx. sp.) is pri- marily an Andean group in South America, there is a moderate diversity of lowland species (Lynch, ). The lowland species tend to have wider distributions; hence, they are better.

The specific name fitzingeri honors Leopold Fitzinger, an Austrian zoologist. Common name Fitzinger's robber frog has been coined for this species. Description. Adult males measure 24–35 mm (– in) and adult Class: Amphibia.

Strabomantis anatipes (vernacular name: anatipes robber frog) is a species of frog in the Craugastoridae family. It is found in the Mira River drainage in extreme northern Ecuador and in adjacent southern Colombia (Nariño, Cauca, and Valle del Cauca Departments) in foothills and lower cloud forest on the Pacific lowlands and slopes of the Cordillera : Amphibia.

Frogs of the genus Eleutherodactylus (Eleutherodactylidae) are grouped into five subgenera and species, with a geographic distribution primarily centered in the Caribbean (Hedges et al., ). In Cuba, the amphibian fauna is largely dominated by these frogs, and it is noteworthy that 90% (50 species) of the native taxa are members of this.

A revision of the broad-headed frogs of the biporcatus species group of Eleutherodactylus s.l. has a wholly unexpected nomenclatural consequence. Eleutherodactylus biporcatus (W. Peters, ) is not from "Veragua" (western Panama) as originally thought, but is the proper name for the Venezuelan frog heretofore known as E.

maussi (Boettger, ). Vertebrates, including amphibians, host diverse symbiotic microbes that contribute to host disease resistance. Globally, and especially in montane tropical systems, many amphibian species are threatened by a chytrid fungus, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), that causes a lethal skin disease.

Bd therefore may be a strong selective agent on the diversity and function of the microbial. Lynch JD. () The species groups of the South American frogs of the genus Eleutherodactylus (Leptodactylidae). Occasional papers of the Museum of Natural History The Kansas University, Lawrence ; Lynch JD.

Common Rain Frogs or Ranas de Lluvia Común (Eleutherodactylus fitzingeri) are common in the humid, lowland rainforests and lower montane forests of Costa Rica. During the daytime, Common Rain Frogs will hide under the leaf litter, but at night, these nocturnal frogs will climb onto low vegetation, where the males will start to call.Eleutherodactylus nortoni is found in the deciduous forests of the Massif de la Selle and Massif de la Hotte in Haiti and Sierra de Bahoruco in the Dominican Republic.

However, due to habitat loss, much of these forests are now urbanized.
