          Abstract

          This study presents a list of anurans associated to bromeliads in Parque Estadual da Serra do Brigadeiro, state of Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil. It also brings information regarding the type of association between these anurans and plants. We recorded eight species belonging to five genera and two families, Cycloramphidae and Hylidae. The most abundant species was Scinax gr. perpusillus, followed by Scinax aff. perereca, Dendropsophus minutus, Bokermannohyla circumdata, Hypsiboas faber, Thoropa miliaris, Hypsiboas polytaenius and Dendropsophus elegans. Most species observed occupying bromeliads uses these microhabitats only as diurnal shelter. Scinax gr. perpusillus was the only classified as bromeligenous, depending upon the plants to complete its reproductive cycle.
