The three members of the Malagasy genus Aglyptodactylus (Aglyptodactylus madagascariensis, Aglyptodactylus laticeps, Aglyptodactylus securifer) form, together with Laliostoma labrosum, the subfamily Laliostominae within the Mantellidae (Ranoidea: Anura). In this paper, the morphology, life history, and ecology of sympatric tadpoles of A. laticeps and A. securifer are described and compared to those of A. madagascariensis and L. labrosum. Tadpoles of all Aglyptodactylus species are morphologically more similar to each other than to L. labrosum. However, all species differ with respect to habitat, feeding habits, and life history.
