Abstract

Recent molecular studies demonstrate that the species Leptodactylus pallidirostris and L. validus are conspecific. Leptodactylus pallidirostris was previously considered to occupy portions of mainland South America (Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana), whereas L. validus was considered to occur only on the islands of Trinidad, Tobago, and certain Lesser Antillian islands. The purpose of this paper is to summarize information for the currently understood single species Leptodactylus validus.
