Scinax catharinae


Scinax catharinae Group

DIAGNOSIS: Because we only included two species of the Scinax catharinae group as exemplars of the S. catharinae clade, the molecular transformations that diagnose this group are redundant with those diagnosing the S. catharinae clade. Presumed morphological synapomorphies of this group include the posterior part of the cricoid ring extensively elongated and curved, the partial mineralization of intercalary elements between ultimate and penultimate phalanges, and the laterodistal origin of the m. extensor brevis distalis digiti III (Faivovich, 2002).
