Early Cretaceous frogs from Morocco

, : Early Cretaceous frogs from Morocco. Annals of Carnegie Museum 72(2): 65-97

The Lower Cretaceous Moroccan locality of Ksar Met-Lili near Anoual has yielded a diverse microvertebrate assemblage including mammals, small reptiles, and amphibians. Here the frogs are described for the first time. Although the material is fragmentary, iliac structure, supplemented by other cranial and postcranial elements, demonstrates the presence of two distinct taxa. One genus is interpreted as a discoglossid, related to members of the Jurassic North American genus Enneabatrachus. The second frog represents a new taxon, and is here named Aygroua anoualensis. It is more difficult to classify, but attributed procoelous vertebrae and a specialized premaxillary-maxillary overlap suggest it is probably a mesobatrachian, possibly a basal pipimorph.
