status

 

Allobates femoralis (Boulenger, 1884) 

TYPE LOCALITY. — Yurimaguas, Huallaga River, Loreto, Peru.

DISTRIBUTION. — Throughout Amazonia.

TAXONOMIC REMARKS. — This widespread species represents a species complex with noticeable differences in call, morphology, and genetics ( Amézquita et al. 2009). The populations of the Guiana Shield display several mitochondrial lineages, all distinct from the populations from Peru ( Fouquet et al. 2012). Therefore, we suspect that the population of the Mitaraka massif may not correspond to the nominal species.

HABITAT IN MITARAKA. — This species was found conspicuously calling throughout the study area.
