Comment

According to the original publication, some records of Eleutherodactylus cruentus from western Colombia and western Ecuador may actually be this species. See account by Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 107-108, who placed this species in the Eleutherodactylus (Eleutherodactylus) martinicensis series, Eleutherodactylus unistrigatus group. In the Pristimantis (Hypodictyon) ridens species series of Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 114. Arteaga-Navarro, Bustamante, and Guayasamin, 2013, Amph. Rept. Mindo: 75–76, provided an account and dot map for Ecuador.
