"Cochranella" riveroi is a species of frog in the family Centrolenidae. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_0

It is endemic to Cerro Aracamuni, Venezuela. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_1

The generic placement of this species within the subfamily Centroleninae is uncertain (incertae sedis ). "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_2

Taxonomy and systematics "Cochranella" riveroi_section_0

This species was originally described as Centrolenella riveroi. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_3

However, most subsequent studies have placed it in the genus Cochranella. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_4

A study published in 2002 suggested that it belongs to the Cochranella spinosa group. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_5

However, morphological data do not allow unambiguous generic placement. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_6

With no molecular data available, it is—for the time being—retained in Cochranella. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_7

Description "Cochranella" riveroi_section_1

Two adult males measured 21.6 and 22.1 mm (0.85 and 0.87 in) while a single female measured 25.0 mm (0.98 in) in snout–vent length; the female had 21 eggs 2.3–2.5 mm (0.091–0.098 in) in diameter in her ovaries. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_8

The tympanum is visible. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_9

The fingers are slightly webbed and the toes moderately webbed. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_10

The dorsal skin is strongly granular. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_11

The coloration of living specimens is unknown. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_12

Habitat and conservation "Cochranella" riveroi_section_2

The type series was collected from terrestrial bromeliads at the summit of Cerro Aracamuni at about 1,600 m (5,200 ft) above sea level. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_13

The vegetation at the summit is mostly low (<1 m), with forested areas in depressions and along streams. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_14

There are no known threats to this species, although its small range makes it vulnerable (Cerro Aracamuni is a tepui with a relatively small summit). "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_15

It occurs in the Serranía de la Neblina National Park. "Cochranella" riveroi_sentence_16
