The Tukeit Hill Frog (Allophryne ruthveni) is the only described species in the genus Allophryne and the only member of the subfamily Allophryninae, a clade recently placed under the family Centrolenidae. These frogs live in Guyana, Venezuela, Surinam, Brazil and Bolivia. The holotype was discovered at , below Kaieteur Falls, Guyana, hence the common English name. [more]
Centrolene is a of glass frogs in the family Centrolenidae. The adult males are characterized by having a humeral spine, as most members of this family. The delimitation of this genus versus Cochranella is not fully resolved, and some species formerly in Centrolenella - which is nowadays synonymized with Centrolene - are now in Hyalinobatrachium. [more]
Cochranella is a genus of glass frogs, characterized by lacking humeral spines in males, and having a lobed liver. About one-third of the species formerly placed in Cochranella were placed into the genus Nymphargus. [more]
Hyalinobatrachium is a genus of glassfrogs characterized by having a bulbous liver covered by white pigment, a transparent parietal peritoneum, extensive membrane between the outer fingers, and lacking a humeral spine in adult males. [more]
At least 8 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Vitreorana.
