Cycloramphidae

provided by wikipedia EN

The Cycloramphidae are a family of frogs endemic to southeastern Brazil.[1] This family has seen large changes in its composition.[1][2] Genera that have at some point been included in the Cycloramphidae are at present placed in the Alsodidae, Hylodidae, Leptodactylidae, and Rhinodermatidae. Of these, the Alsodidae and/or Hylodidae have also been considered as subfamilies of Cycloramphidae (as, respectively, Alsodinae and Hylodinae); the Cycloramphidae, as recognized at present, would be similar to subfamily Cycloramphinae under such system.[1]

Genera

There are 36 species in three genera:[1]

The AmphibiaWeb omits Zachaenus from this family, considering its placement within Hyloidea as uncertain.[3]
