Disclaimer, This is a work in progress, continually being developed and revised. Proposed taxonomic names included here are not valid unless subsequently published in accepted taxonomic papers. Note on images This introduction to a classification of Euophryinae includes only species with diagnostic illustrations in the taxonomic literature arranged by similarities of embolus and spermophor. Images are displayed as thumbnails to save space and allow for rapid scanning of theoretically closely-related species. Thumbnails are small versions of illustrations in other parts of the monograph, whera are displayed together with particulars of their sources and permissions.

Introduction

Definition. Epigyne with prominent pair of sclerotized pockets, of various position. Spermathecae heavily sclerotized body, ducts usually light sclerotized, often make simple loop, rarely long and entangled. Embolus single, often inside sheath structure.
