Dryophytes andersonii (Baird, 1854)

Class: Amphibia > Order: Anura > Family: Hylidae > Subfamily: Hylinae > Genus: Dryophytes > Species: Dryophytes andersonii

Hyla andersonii Baird, 1854, Proc. Acad. Nat. Sci. Philadelphia, 7: 60. Holotype: not stated; USNM 3600 according to Cochran, 1961, Bull. U.S. Natl. Mus., 220: 51. Type locality: "Anderson, [Anderson County,] South Carolina", USA; in error according to Neill, 1947, Herpetologica, 4: 75–76, who (Neill, 1957, Copeia, 1957: 141) did not think it occurred at the type locality; designated as "Aiken County, South Carolina", USA, by Schmidt, 1953, Check List N. Am. Amph. Rept., Ed. 6: 69, although this restriction is invalid inasmuch as it is not based on disclosed evidence. See Gosner and Black, 1967, Cat. Am. Amph. Rept., 54: 1, who regarded the type locality as unknown. Brown, 1980, Brimleyana, 3: 113-117, discussed the type locality. Fouquette and Dubois, 2014, Checklist N.A. Amph. Rept.: 332, give the year of publication incorrectly as 1856; see Fox, 1913, Proc. Acad. Nat. Sci. Philadelphia,, Index, 1812-1912: vii–xiv.
