Project 726: F. B. R. Gomes, D. B. Provete, I. A. Martins. 2010. The tadpole of Physalaemus jordanensis Bokermann, 1967 (Anura, Leiuperidae) from Campos do Jordão, Serra da Mantiqueira, Southeastern Brazil. Zootaxa. 2327:65-68.
Specimen: Physalaemus jordanensis (UNESP/DZSJRP:1359.1)
View: Internal oral feature of larvae


Description of tadpole: Body ovoid in dorsal view and globular/depressed in lateral view (Figure 1A). Body about 38% ± 1.57 (depending on the stage) of the total length. Snout rounded in dorsal and lateral views. Nostrils rounded, with opening directed dorsally. Eyes dorsal, laterally directed. Spiracle sinistral, medium-sized, narrow, with opening directed
postero-dorsally, located at the middle third of the body; centripetal wall of the spiracle tube fused to the body wall. Vent tube broad, medial, attached to ventral fin, with dextral opening. Tail approximately 16% ± 9.73 higher than body (depending on the stage). Tail long, about 61% ± 1.57 of the total length (depending on the stage). Dorsal fin origin at the body-tail junction.
