          Abstract

          ABSTRACT The fringed leaf frog, Cruziohyla craspedopus is rarely sampled in the Brazilian Amazon, probably due to low detection probability associated with its arboreal habit. The knowledge about the species’ distribution stems from successive additions of occasional occurrence records, which indicate that the species is widely distributed throughout Amazonia. We present new occurrence records to update the geographic range of the species, which is hereby extended 224 km to the northeast. We also present morphological data from collected specimens and discuss the updated range from the geographic and ecological points of view. We show that the range of the leaf frog crosses several main tributaries along the southern bank of the Amazonas River, although the species occurrence is apparently limited by a minimum tree cover of 70%.

          RESUMO A perereca franjada, Cruziohyla craspedopus é raramente amostrada na Amazônia brasileira, provavelmente devido à baixa probabilidade de detecção associada ao seu hábito arborícola. A distribuição geográfica conhecida da espécie é resultado da adição sucessiva de registros ocasionais de ocorrência, que indicam que ela é amplamente distribuída na Amazônia. Nós apresentamos novos pontos de ocorrência para atualizar a distribuição geográfica da espécie, estendendo-a em 224 km na direção nordeste. Nós também apresentamos dados morfológicos dos espécimes coletados e discutimos a distribuição atualizada sob pontos de vista geográfico e ecológico. Mostramos que a distribuição de pererecas franjadas cruza vários tributários da margem sul do Rio Amazonas, embora esteja aparentemente limitada por cobertura arbórea mínima de 70%.
