The external larval morphology of Pleurodema somuncurensis was briefly described in the context of a larval morphology account of the genus Telmatobius. Later, was provided additional information of external larval features of P. somuncurensis, but in the context of the patagonian genera formerly referred as ?Lower Telmatobiinae?. Recently, we studied a sample of larvae of Pleurodema somuncurensis and noticed some inconsistencies with the description, mainly in regard to the oral disc configuration. The present work describes in detail the external larval morphology of P. somuncurensis and discusses its morphological traits in the context of the recently proposed phylogeny of the genus.
