Abstract

We describe the advertisement call of Scaphiophryne gottlebei from the Isalo Massif (southcentral Madagascar). Calling males were found during a rainy night in November (21 C in air temperature). The call is similar in temporal and spectral structure to that of other Scaphiophryne species, such as S. boribory and S. spinosa, with a note repetition rate of 32–36/s, and a frequency range of 500–1400 Hz.
