TOLEDO, Luís Felipe; CASTANHO, Luciano Mendes  and  HADDAD, Célio F. B.. Recognition and distribution of Leptodactylus mystaceus (Anura; Leptodactylidae) in the State of São Paulo, Southeastern Brazil. Biota Neotrop. [online]. 2005, vol.5, n.1, pp.57-62. ISSN 1676-0611.

Leptodactylus mystaceus, a widespread species over South America, is diagnosed based on specimens from the State of São Paulo, its southernmost geographic distribution limit. Here we present the first record of this species for Southeastern Brazil, extending its distribution for approximately 1,300 km to the southeast. We also include a description of its advertisement call, natural history data, photograph in life and morphological illustrations that make easier the identification of the species.

Keywords : Geographic distribution; advertisement call; Leptodactylus mystaceus.
