First records of two rain frogs, genus Pristimantis (Anura, Craugastoridae), for Colombia

Fabio Leonardo Meza-Joya

Abstract


Pristimantis yukpa and P. rivasi are two rain frogs recently described from Sierra de Perijá in Venezuela. Although these species have been expected to occur in the Colombian side of this mountain range, no evidence of their presence was available to date. Herein, I report for the first time the presence of these species for Serranía de Perijá in Colombia. Updated maps of their geographical distribution are shown.


Keywords
