Advertisement call and range extension of Pristimantis crepitans (Bokermann) (Amphibia, Anura, Strabomantidae)

Christine Strüssmann André Pansonato Davi Soares About the authors

New material of Pristimantis crepitans (Bokermann, 1965) was obtained from rocky outcrops located in southwestern borders of the Cerrado biome from central Brazil, and in the western border of the Pantanal wetlands, in the boundaries between Brazil and Bolivia. Individuals were collected and recorded in the type-locality and in four additional municipalities, in two mid-western Brazilian states: Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul. Besides range extension and morphometric data additional to those in the original description, we here provide a description of the topotypical vocalization of P. crepitans, as well as photographs of live specimens and of some of their habitats, for the first time in the literature.
