Removed from the synonymy of Colostethus brunneus by Edwards, 1971, Proc. Biol. Soc. Washington, 84: 148, where it had been placed by Cochran, 1961, Bull. U.S. Natl. Mus., 220: 49, and Cochran and Goin, 1970, Bull. U.S. Natl. Mus., 288: 48. Prior to the revision of Grant, Frost, Caldwell, Gagliardo, Haddad, Kok, Means, Noonan, Schargel, and Wheeler, 2006, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 299, placed in the Colostethus brunneus group (Group II) of Rivero, 1990 "1988", Mem. Soc. Cienc. Nat. La Salle, 48: 3-32. Izecksohn and Carvalho-e-Silva, 2001, Anf. Municipio Rio de Janeiro: 35, provided a brief account and photo. Prior to the revision of Grant, Frost, Caldwell, Gagliardo, Haddad, Kok, Means, Noonan, Schargel, and Wheeler, 2006, Bull. Am. Mus.

La Salle, 48: 3-32; or the Colostethus trilineatus group of Morales, 2002 "2000", Publ. Asoc. Amigos Doñana, 13: 1-59 (who provided accounts for this species as Allobates alagoanus). Verdade and Rodrigues, 2007, J. Herpetol., 41: 566-580, provided a revision of the species and placed Allobates alagoanus, Allobates capixaba, and Allobates carioca into synonymy.
