The chondrocranium and hyobranchial skeleton of Rhinella abei, R. crucifer, R. granulosa, R. henseli, R. hoogmoedi, R. icterica, R. jimi, R. ornata, R. pombali, R. pygmaea and R. schneideri are described, and compared with each other and other bufonids based on the descriptions available in the literature. The chondrocranium and hyobranchial skeleton of Rhinella is conserved in many aspects. These similarities are associated with suprarostral components, the distal end of the cornua trabeculae, cartilago orbitalis, palatoquadrate and processes of the ceratohyal and ceratobranchial IV. Rhinella granulosa is the most distinct species of the genus described here, differing from other species in the shape of its pars corporis, its ethmoid plate width, the shape of the fenestra subocularis, the inclination of the processus muscularis quadrati, the commissura quadratoorbitalis, the length of the processus ascendens and the shape of the processus anterior hyalis.
