Brevicipitidae

Wikipedia Abstract

Brevicipitidae or rain frogs is a small family of frogs, which as of November 2013 contains 34 species in 5 genera. Formerly included as subfamily in Microhylidae (narrow-mouth frogs), phylogenetical research has indicated the brevicipitine frogs should be considered as a family with Hemisotidae (shovelnose frogs) as the most closely related sister taxon.Most adult brevicipitine frogs are not easily seen as they spend extended periods of time in soil or leaf litter.
