Rana pygmaea Spix, 1824 

Spix, 1824. Nova Spec. Nov. Test. Ran. Brasil: 30; pl. 6, fig. 2. Current name: Leptodactylus ocellatus (Linnaeus, 1758) 

Paratype: possibly RMNH 2041, 1 spec. Loc.: Brésil.

Remarks. According to Heyer (1973: 26) the holotype from the Zoologisches Staatssammlung München is now lost. Hoogmoed & Grüber (1983: 356) indicated that type material may have never been in the Zoologisches Staatssammlung and that RMNH 2041 probably belongs to the type series, but they “refrain from considering it a syntype ”.
