  Mantellidae

206 species in 12 genera

Mantellids are found only on the large island of Madagascar. The most famous members are of the genus Mantella which have converged with members of the neotropical family Dendrobatidae in body plan, ecology, aposematic coloration, and in lipophilic skin alkaloids. Most mantellid species are terrestrial although there are also aquatic, arboreal (the genus Boophis resembles treefrogs of the subfamily Hylinae, within the family Hylidae), and semi-fossorial species. Body sizes range from 30-100 mm SVL. Reproductive life histories vary from eggs deposited on vegetation with tadpoles that develop into streams, to terrestrial clutches whose tadpoles wash into streams, to land and arboreal direct developers. A strange mode of amplexus is found within Mantellinae, where the male places the ventral surface of his thighs on the head of the female and allows the sperm to travel down the back and onto the extruded clutch.
