Tadpole description

Morphological description and measurements of tadpoles (to the nearest 0.1 mm) were obtained using a stereomicroscope (Zeiss Discovery V12) following landmarks, terminology and definitions of Altig and McDiarmid (1999). Developmental stages were identified following Gosner (1960). Labial tooth row formula (LTRF) follows Altig and McDiarmid (1999) but labial teeth are named ‘keratodonts’. For a list of morphological characters measured and abbreviations used, see tadpole description in Appendix 3.
