Suborder Mesobatrachia

The suborder Mesobatrachia is the second largest sub orders of frogs. Mesobatrachia means middle frogs as they aren’t primitive such as the sub order Archaeobatrachia but they aren’t as advanced as Neobatrachia.

The families in Mesobatrachia are Megophryidae (Leaf Litter Frogs), Pelobatidae (European Spadefoot toads), Pelodytidae (Parsley Frogs), Pipidae (Tongueless Frogs), Rhinophrynidae (Mexican Burrowing Frog), and Scaphiopodidae (American Spadefoot Toads).
