Abstract

Three species of hylid frogs of the genus Nyctimystes have been reported from Australia. With evidence from morphology and field work, we conclude there is only one species. The earliest available name for this taxon is Hyla dayi Gunther 1897, the holotype of which is missing. We refer the species to Nyctimystes and, to stabilise the nomenclature, we designate a neotype.
