Another member of this group is Leptodactylus, a genus of larger species who are convergent on our northern frogs in the genus Rana (actually, that name may have changed too!) in habits and shape - long-legged jumping species of wet areas and edges. In my research before herping in Venezuela I narrowed down a list of about eight possible Leptodactylus and relatives that I could potentially see. Even with this pared down list, details on identification were sketchy, and I still had a rough time sorting out these frogs. When I compiled enough photos of all of Leptodactylus I saw on Hato Masaguaral, I could break it down into two groups. With some help from fieldherpforum, I confirmed the ID on these two species:
Leptodactylus wagneri (probably a species complex, so look for that name to change too)
I would say these identifications are more tentative than the others I post, so don't run off and claim these as a taxonomic authority on the subject!
For video of the wagneri calling, see my frog video post.
Are these the only two species I saw on the ranch? Probably not, but they are so difficult to catch many got away.
