Amphibia-Reptilia 31 (2010): 85-96 Phylogeography of Rhinella spinulosa (Anura: Bufonidae) in northern Chile Claudio Correa 1 , Luis Pastenes 1 , Michel Sallaberry 2 , Alberto Veloso 2 , Marco A. Méndez 1,2,3,* Abstract. The southern part of the Altiplano of the Andes Range is characterized by a complex hydrography, due to an intense geologic activity and the effects of the Pleistocene glaciations. This has produced a high degree of diversity at the species level in some aquatic taxa (e.g., fish and amphibians), which suggests that these same processes have produced divergence at the intraspecific level in co-distributed taxa. We investigated the genetic variation in populations of the anuran Rhinella spinulosa which represent its entire distribution in the extreme north of Chile (17 ◦ 44 ′ S-23 ◦ 47 ′ S). Haplotype networks of the mitochondrial control region recognized two main lineages, one of which is distributed from the northern boundary of Chile to the Salar de Alconcha and the other from the Salar de Carcote to the locality of Tilomonte. The northern lineage showed little phylogeographic structure; a few very frequent haplotypes are widely distributed. The southern lineage had greater structure, due principally to the high divergence
