Leptodactylidae (neotropical frogs)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Southern Frogs form Leptodactylidae, a diverse family of frogs that probably diverged from other hyloids during the Cretaceous. Of the roughly 50 genera, one, Eleutherodactylus, is the largest vertebrate genus, with over 700 species. In total, the approximately 1100 leptodactylid species are widely distributed throughout Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The family is often considered paraphyletic and has no morphological synapomorphies.
