status

 

Hylidae  : Scinaxinae

Our analysis suggests that in the late Eocene (~ 49 Mya) arboreal Sphaenorhynchus  diverged from the ancestral scinaxines in the Atlantic Coastal Forest of Brazil. Our limited data suggest that the Brazilian and Amazonian clades of Sphaenorhynchus  separated in the late Oligocene (~ 22 Mya). As the climate became drier and seasonal in southern South America in the early Oligocene (~ 34 Mya), the scinaxine stock diverged into Julianus  in the southeastern part of the range, Ololygon  in the Atlantic Coastal Forest, and Scinax  in the Amazon Basin.
