dc.description.abstract "Albericus, new genus, is erected to accommodate three species removed from the genus Cophixalus Boettger 1892: Albericus darlingtoni (Loveridge) 1948, the type species; Albericus tuberculus (Richards et al.) 1992; and Albericus variegatus (van Kampen) 1923. The fifth toe being longer than the third and the M. depressor mandibulae arising mostly or entirely from the otic ramus of the squamosal and the adjacent prootic bone are apomorphic characters distinguishing Albericus from Cophixalus. The closest relative of Albericus is the monotypic genus Choerophryne with which it shares certain derived characters"--P. [1]. en_US
