Bufo albifrons Spix, 1824 

Spix, 1824. Nova Spec. Nov. Test. Ran. Brasil: 48; pl. XIX, fig. 2. Current name: Physalaemus albifrons ( Spix, 1824) 

Lectotype: RMNH 2272, 1 Ψ. Loc.: “Habitat in Provincia Bahia” [ Brazil]. Leg.: J.B. von Spix.

Remarks. Hoogmoed & Gruber (1973: 374) stated that the two original syntypes of this species in the Zoologisches Staatssammlung München ( ZSM 49 /0 and 50 /0) should be considered lost. Subsequently Hoogmoed (1986: 299) considered RMNH 2272 the remaining syntype of the original series and designated it as lectotype. The type locality was given as “Porto Alegre” [ Brazil] by Boulenger (1887: 296). According to Bokermann (1966 a: 17) the type locality is “provàvelmente... da região central de taboleiros” [Bahia, Brazil].
