  Megophryidae (see family information on Tree of Life site)

206 species in 10 genera

The Megophryidae are cryptic frogs placed in 11 genera, with an overall trend of morphologically mimicking dead leaves on the forest floor. These are the largest, most ecologically and morphologically diverse group of non-neobatrachian frogs in South and Southeast Asia, extending through India, Pakistan, Southeast Asia, Borneo, Phillippines, and Sunda Islands. Tadpoles are aquatic with buccal adaptations. Megophrys nasuta, when viewed dorsally, resembles a leaf with its coloration, overall shape, and even leaf-vein looking epidermal growths! These frogs are nocturnal and are poor jumpers, instead preferring to “walk” around. Morphological characters for this family are: 1) ceratohyals absent in adults; 2) intervertebral cartilages with ossified centers; 3) paddle-shaped tongue; 4) pectoral girdle arciferal with long bony sternum; 5) sacral diapophyses expanded antero-posteriorly; 6) palatines absent, with a palatal process of maxilla instead present in this area.
