Glyphoglossus huadianensis sp. n. taxonomy morphology China
A new species of microhylid frog of the genus Glyphoglossus Günther, 1869 is described from Huadianba, Cangshan Mountain, Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, China. Glyphoglossus huadianensis, new species, is compared with congeners from China and other parts of Southeast Asia, and was distinguished from the others by the following combination of characters: adult male body size up to 37.8 mm; pupil rounded; supratympanic fold distinct; tympanum concealed; toe tips obtuse; subarticular tubercles prominent and rounded; foot webbing extensive; outer metatarsal tubercle present; dorsum tuberculate, yellowish-brown/earth-yellow; and a pair of conspicuous large round spots in groin. The new species is the tenth species of Glyphoglossus to be described, and the second known from China.
