Bokermannohyla is a genus of frogs in the family Hylidae. Scientists invented this genus in 2005. That year, many amphibian scientists looked at the species of in Hylidae and decided to make changes.[1] Twenty-three species that had been placed in the genus Hyla were moved to Bokermannohyla.

These frogs live in southern Brazil.[2]

Scientist tell whether a frog is a Bokermannohyla frog using 65 specific parts of the DNA in its nucleus and mitochondria. These genes are for proteins and ribosomes.[1]

This group is named after scientist Werner Carlos Agosto Bokermann.[1]

Size[change | change source]

With most frogs, the adult female frog is larger than the adult male frog. But with some frogs in Bokermannohyla, the adult male frog is larger. Scientists say this happens when the male frogs fight each other for good places to find female frogs.[3]
