FAMILY HYLIDAE Rafinesque 1815 , 78

(2 subfamilies, 15 genera, 34 species, 7 endemic species)

SUBFAMILY HYLINAE Rafinesque 1815, 78 (13 genera, 30 species, 7 endemic species)

Anotheca H. Smith 1939 , 191 (1 species)

Anotheca spinosa (Steindachner 1864, 239)

Bromeliohyla Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell & Wheeler 2005 , 99 (1 species) Bromeliohyla bromeliacia (K. Schmidt 1933, 19)

Dendropsophus Fitzinger 1843 , 31 (2 species)

Dendropsophus ebraccatus (Cope 1874, 69) Dendropsophus microcephalus (Cope 1886, 281)

Duellmanohyla Campbell & Smith 1992 , 163 (2 species, 1 endemic species) Duellmanohyla salvavida (E) ( McCranie & Wilson 1986, 51)

Duellmanohyla soralia (Wilson & McCranie 1985, 133)

Ecnomiohyla Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell & Wheeler 2005 , 100 (2 species) Ecnomiohyla miliaria (Cope 1886, 272)

Ecnomiohyla salvaje (Wilson, McCranie & Williams 1985, 141)

Exerodonta Brocchi 1879 , 20 (1 species, 1 endemic species) Exerodonta catracha (E) (Porras & Wilson 1987, 478) Isthmohyla Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell & Wheeler 2005 , 102 (2 species, 1 endemic species). Based on different reproductive parameters and adult external morphology in the two Honduran species placed in this genus, that grouping appears unnatural and likely to change with additional study.

Isthmohyla insolita (E) (McCranie, Wilson & Williams 1993, 1057)

Isthmohyla melacaena ( McCranie & Castañeda 2006, 319). This species was previously thought to be a Honduran endemic ( Solís et al. 2014), but Sean Rovito has recently collected this species in Guatemala (pers. comm.).

Plectrohyla Brocchi 1877 , 92 (7 species, 3 endemic species)

Plectrohyla chrysopleura (E) Wilson, McCranie & Cruz 1994, 68

Plectrohyla dasypus (E) McCranie & Wilson 1981, 1

Plectrohyla exquisita (E) McCranie & Wilson 1998, 96

Plectrohyla guatemalensis Brocchi 1877 , 92. Honduran populations placed in this species appear to represent more than one species. Those populations on cerros Celaque and Pital differ significantly from other Honduran populations in several characters, including the adults lacking the strongly tuberculate dorsal surfaces found in other populations. It seems likely, that the Honduran populations represent several cryptic species, with the Celaque-Pital populations leading candidates for a new species.

Plectrohyla hartwegi Duellman 1968 , 576

Plectrohyla matudai Hartweg 1941 , 5

Plectrohyla psiloderma McCranie & Wilson 1999 , 232

Ptychohyla Taylor 1944 , 41 (4 species, 1 endemic species)

Ptychohyla euthysanota (Kellogg 1928, 123). The type locality of this species is on the El Salvador side of Cerro El Pital. That mountain range straddles the Honduran-El Salvadoran border and a series of frogs have been collected on the Honduran side of Pital, only some 10 km from the P. euthysanota type locality. These Honduran frogs resemble P. euthysanota in their flank patterns (see text and illustration in Duellman 2001) and in their prepollicle spine structure (see illustration in Köhler 2011). Thus, P. euthysanota is herein included for the first time as a member of the Honduran herpetofauna.

Ptychohyla hypomykter McCranie & Wilson 1993 , 101

Ptychohyla salvadorensis (Mertens 1952, 170). This species differs significantly from the remaining Honduran species placed in this genus by lacking the large prepollicle spines, instead having prepollicle spinules.

Ptychohyla spinipollex (E) (K. Schmidt 1936, 45). Townsend et al. (2012) discussed the possibility that more than one species is present within this nominal form.

Scinax Wagler 1830 , 201 (2 species)

Scinax boulengeri (Cope 1887, 12) Scinax staufferi (Cope 1866, 195)

Smilisca Cope 1866 , 194 (3 species)

Smilisca baudinii (A.M.C. Duméril & Bibron 1841, 564) Smilisca phaeota (Cope 1862, 358)

Smilisca sordida (Peters 1863, 460)

Tlalocohyla Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell & Wheeler 2005 , 107 (2 species) Tlalocohyla loquax (Gaige & Stuart 1934, 1)

Tlalocohyla picta (Günther 1901, 286)

Trachycephalus Tschudi 1838 , 74 (1 species)

Trachycephalus typhonius (Linnaeus 1758, 211)

SUBFAMILY PHYLLOMEDUSINAE Günther 1859, 120 (2 genera, 4 species)

Agalychnis Cope 1864 , 181 (3 species)

Agalychnis callidryas (Cope 1862, 359) Agalychnis moreletii (A.H.A. Duméril 1853, 169) Agalychnis saltator Taylor 1955 , 527

Cruziohyla Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell & Wheeler 2005 , 113 (1 species) Cruziohyla calcarifer (Boulenger 1902, 52)
