Dendropsophus microcephalus is a species of frog in the family Hylidae. This widespread species might actually be a species complex. It is dorsally smooth and pale to bright yellow with two fairly distinct light brown lines that run in parallel down the length of the body. Upper surfaces of the thighs have dark markings.

We investigated the calling energetics of Hyla microcephala , a neotropical treefrog with an unusually complex vocal repertoire. Males respond to the calls of other individuals by adding secondary click notes to their calls, thereby increasing the total number of notes given per minute.

Rates of oxygen consumption of males calling in metabolic chambers were 0. Data from playback experiments with males in the field showed that note rate increased as as the number of notes in a stimulus call increased, and this resulted in substantial increases in the cost of calling. Average metabolic rates for males in the field were about 1. Male H. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access. Rent this article via DeepDyve.
