  Hemiphractidae

102 species in 6 genera

The family Hemiphractidae contains direct-developing frogs which bear the developing eggs on the back until they hatch. Frogs of the genera Flectonotus, Gastrotheca, Cryptobatrachus and Stefania are known as "marsupial" frogs since they carry the developing embryos in a dorsal pouch. Only the genus Hemiphractus lacks this dorsal pouch. All members of this family except for Flectonotus pygmaeus have embryos with two pairs of bell-shaped gills, which derive from the first and second branchial arches. Frogs of the genus Hemiphractus have distinct triangle-shaped heads.

This family is found in South and Central America, in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Panama.
