Taxonomy [top]

Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family
ANIMALIA CHORDATA AMPHIBIA ANURA HYLIDAE

Scientific Name: Smilisca sordida
Species Authority: (Peters, 1863)
Taxonomic Notes: It is not clear that records from Colombia refer to the same species as those in Central America, in part, because of the large gap in the distribution (K.-H. Jungfer pers. comm.). It is possible that this is a complex of two or three species (Federico Bolaños pers. comm.).
