Genus Anodonthyla

Anodonthyla is a genus of microhylids endemic to Madagascar.


One of the most obvious morphological synapomorphies of the genus is the presence, in males only, of a large prepollex that runs along the first finger and generally is closely connected to the first finger over most of its length. Correlated to this character, in males and females, the first finger is very short compared to other cophylines.


It contains eleven recognized species:
