Resumen:
Melanophryniscus rubriventris rubriventris larvae are described based on 18 individuals in Stages 31-34 of Gosner's (1960) developmental table. They are similar to other tadpoles of Melanophryniscus in terms of overall morphology, but differ from Melanophryniscus moreirae, M. orejasmirandai, and M. sanmartini in the formula of keratodont rows, from M. stelzneri montevidensis in characters of the proctodeal tube and spiraculum, and from M. stelzneri stelzneri in characters of the spiraculum and size of the oral disc. No larval information is available regarding the remaining taxa of the genus.
