Abstract. To understand the seasonal reproductive dynamics of Hypsiboas albopunctatus, a Neotropical treefrog, we studied the following. Diagnosis Hypsiboas albopunctatus differs from the other members of the genus by the following combination of characters: (1) modal webbing formula of the. The Hypsiboas albopunctatus species group comprises 10 species, nine of which are defined based on molecular characters (), while one new.

The types of perch, perch height and distance from the calling male to the albopubctatus were similar in both species. R Development Core Team Recovers only records that contain the word Lithobates AND “Costa Rica”, but excludes any record that contains the word “forreri” in any part of the record: We recorded 24 males of H.

A factorial ANOVA was also used to test if perch height and distance to water differed between situations. Acoustic interaction; acoustic partition; specific recognition; spatial partition.
