Abstract

Scinax constrictus is the only species in the Scinax rostratus group endemic to the Cerrado in Brazil. Here, we describe the external morphology and internal oral features of the S. constrictus tadpole and compare it with other known tadpoles of the S. rostratus group. The tadpole of S. constrictus has a wide dorsal gap and a ventral gap in the marginal papillae of the oral disc, a labial tooth row formula of 2(2)/3(1) with P3 modified as a labial arm, and without infralabial and lingual papillae.
