Comment

Removed from Brachycephalidae by Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 95. Association of Atopophrynus, Dischidodactylus, Euparkerella, and Geobatrachus was made provisionally with this taxon by Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 1-182, substantially on the basis of geography (p. 97). Padial, Castroviejo-Fisher, and De la Riva, 2009, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 52: 911-915, provided molecular evidence that this taxon may not be monophyletic. Pyron and Wiens, 2011, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 61: 543-583, in their study of Genbank sequences, redelimited this taxon to just Strabomantis, as a subfamily of Crausgastoridae, and suggested that it does not form a monophyletic group with Holoadeninae, but more likely with Hypodactylus.
