Leptodactylus lineatus (Schneider, 1799)

Lithodytes lineatus (Spanish: sapito listado) is a species of frog in the Leptodactylidae family. It is monotypic within the genus Lithodytes, although it has also been included in Leptodactylus.[2]

Distribution and habitat[edit]

It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, Venezuela, and possibly Trinidad and Tobago.[2] Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, moist savanna, and intermittent freshwater marshes from altitudes ranging from sea level to 1800m above sea level. The species can be found below logs, leaf-litter and other cover in forests. They build foam nests at the edge of temporary pools; the larvae develop within these water bodies.[1]
