dc.description.abstract "The fauna of New Guinea includes representatives of two subfamilies of microhylid frogs: the Asterophryinae and Sphenophryninae. The monotypic genus Genyophryne was placed in the former group, but evidence developed here indicates a closer affinity with the Sphenophryninae. The partly free tongue and procoelous vertebral column are sphenophrynine characters, and other morphological features are either neutral with respect to assessing relationships or favor the Sphenophryninae. Data on the variation and distribution of G. thomsoni (known only in eastern New Guinea and on the D'Entrecasteaux and Louisiade islands) are presented"--P. [1]. en_US
