Telmatobiinae was originally a large subfamily of leptodactylid frogs. The subfamily has since undergone extensive revision, and most genera have been placed elsewhere. Their removal from the large and confusing Leptodactylidae family is based on genetic distinction. Only one genus, Telmatobius Wiegmann, 1834, is left, making Telmatobiinae/Telmatobiidae monogeneric. Some sources, however, treat Batrachophrynus as a genus separate from Telmatobius.
The original layout of the Telmatobiinae subfamily is presented here for reference.
Most of the genera originally assigned to Telmatobiinae have since been moved to other families. With Batrachophrynus included in Telmatobius, only one of the original genera are maintained in the present Telmatobiidae, namely the Telmatobius.
