Comment

In the Eleutherodactylus unistrigatus group, according to the original publication. In the Eleutherodactylus (Eleutherodactylus) conspicillatus series, unassigned to species group by Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 223. Köhler, 2000, Bonn. Zool. Monogr., 48: 115-117, provided a brief account (but confounded Pristimantis danae with Pristimantis reichlei). In the Pristimantis (Pristimantis) peruvianus species group of Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 126; this reformulated as the Pristimantis danae species group by Padial, Grant, and Frost, 2014, Zootaxa, 3825: 125. Padial and De la Riva, 2009, Zool. J. Linn. Soc., 155: 111, provided a distribuation map and named Pristimantis reichlei, which was previously confused with Pristimantis danae. See comment under Pristimantis reichlei. See Duellman and Lehr, 2009, Terrest.-breeding Frogs in Peru: 173-174, for brief account.
