status

 

Hylidae  : Pseudinae

In the early Oligocene, 32.3 (25.8–38.7) Mya, the crown node time of this subfamily, a clade of aquatic and semiaquatic frogs with elongate, calcified intercalary elements in the digits gave rise to the semiaquatic Scarthyla  in the upper Amazon Basin. The major component of the pseudine clade differentiated into the smaller Lysapsus  and the larger Pseudis  in the early Miocene about 21.5 (18.4–24.6) Mya. Both genera have broad distributions in the Guiana Region and tropical and subtropical South America east of the Andes.
