Advertisement Call, Colour Variation, Natural History, and Geographic Distribution of Proceratophrys caramaschii (Anura: Odontophrynidae)

Proceratophrys caramaschii was described only from a single locality in Mucuripe, Fortaleza municipality, Ceará state, Brazil. The discovery of a new population of this poorly known species facilitated the collection of new data regarding colour in life, vocalization, habitat, and geographic distribution. It has a much wider distribution than formerly thought, is considerably variable in its colour pattern, and its reproductive strategy is strongly associated with the beginning of the rainy season.
