  Cycloramphidae

34 species in 2 genera

The family Cycloramphidae contains 14 genera, most of which were formerly considered to be within the family Leptodactylidae, and one of which (Rhinoderma) was formerly considered as a separate family, the Rhinodermatidae. The genus Rhinoderma has a very unusual form of male parental care, with the male scooping up the fertilized eggs in his mouth and brooding them in his vocal pouches. In the case of Rhinoderma darwinii, the larvae receive nutrition from viscous secretions within the male's vocal pouch, remaining within the pouch until they become froglets and emerge from the male's mouth. Many species of the genus Proceratophrys mimic dead leaves in appearance.

This family is found in South America.
