dendrobatidae Cope, 1865 (1850) (Amphibia, Anura): family-group name conserved
Abstract

The widely used family-group name Dendrobatidae Cope, 1865 (1850) is conserved by giving it precedence over the senior synonym phyllobatidae Fitzinger, 1843 whenever the two are considered synonyms. As a further protection of the family name of this group of Neotropical frogs, the generic name Hysaplesia Boie in Schlegel, 1826, considered by some authors as a senior synonym of the generic name Dendrobates Wagler, 1830, is hereby suppressed.
