AMPHIBIAWEB

 

(Translations may not be accurate.)

Rana capito (LeConte, 1855)
Carolina Gopher Frog
Subgenus: Pantherana
family: Ranidae
genus: Rana
Species Description: LeConte, J. E. (1855). "Descriptive catalogue of the Ranina of the United States." Proceedings of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia 7: 423–431.
 
Taxonomic Notes: This species was placed in the genus Lithobates by Frost et al. (2006). However, Yuan et al. (2016, Systematic Biology, doi: 10.1093/sysbio/syw055) showed that this action created problems of paraphyly in other genera. Yuan et al. (2016) recognized subgenera within Rana for the major traditional species groups, with Lithobates used as the subgenus for the Rana palmipes group. AmphibiaWeb recommends the optional use of these subgenera to refer to these major species groups, with names written as Rana (Aquarana) catesbeiana, for example.
