Abstract

An analysis of specimens deposited in herpetological collections and identified as Physalaemus fuscomaculatus demonstrated that these differ from the types of this taxon, Eupemphix fuscomaculatus, Consequently, the taxonomic status of Gomphobates marmoratus and Eupemphix fuscomaculatus was revised based on the types and on data in the literature. Gomphobates marmoratus is associated to the genus Physalaemus, as Physalaemus marmoratus, and refers to specimens previously identified as Physalaemus fuscomaculatus, Additionally, Eupemphix fuscomaculatus is associated to the genus Pleurodema in the combination Pleurodema fuscomaculata.
