Stumpffia is a speciose genus of miniature to small microhylid frogs endemic to Madagascar.[1]

Taxonomy[edit]

Stumpffia was first described from the single species Stumpffia psologlossa Boettger, 1881, based on a single specimen collected on Nosy Be, a large island off the northwest coast of Madagascar, by Anotonio Stumpff.[2] By 2017, 15 species were recognised. In late 2017, a major revision of the genus was published.[3] This study used integrative taxonomy, i.e. the combination of multiple different datasets, to delimit and describe new species: it combined morphological, morphometric, chromatic, bioacoustic, and genetic data to provide new data on the 15 described species of Stumpffia, and describe a further 26 new species.[3]

Debate on synonymy with Rhombophryne[edit]

The genus Stumpffia was proposed to be a junior synonym of Rhombophryne in 2016,[4] but this proposal was contradicted and reversed by authors of a subsequent study, on the basis of their reciprocal monophyly and consistent morphological differences between the two genera that allow them to be distinguished.[5] The latter study established a new genus, Anilany for "Stumpffia" helenae, a species that would otherwise have rendered Stumpffia paraphyletic, and which is morphologically and genetically highly distinct from any species of Rhombophryne or Stumpffia.[5]

This debate was continued in 2017, with one group of authors continuing to advocate for synonymy of these two genera plus Anilany,[6] while the other group of authors continued to advocate for separate treatment of these genera based on their monophyly and morphological distinction allowing them to be distinguished with comparative ease.[7] An impasse was reached. As of January 2018, the Amphibian Species of the World database continues to adopt the single-genus taxonomy, and as a result, so too do the IUCN Red List of Endangered Species and other online databases (e.g. iNaturalist) that draw from that resource. Meanwhile, AmphibiaWeb has continued to use the three-genus taxonomy, as have all taxonomists working on cophyline systematics,[3][8][9] and other groups working more broadly on frog evolution and taxonomy.[10]
