Comment

In the Eleutherodactylus (Eleutherodactylus) conspicillatus series, Eleutherodactylus conspicillatus group according to Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 234. Lescure and Marty, 2000, Collect. Patrimoines Nat., Paris, 45: 214-214, provided a photo and brief account for French Guiana. Barrio-Amorós, 1999 "1998", Acta Biol. Venezuelica, 18: 56, provided Venezuelan localities. Barrio-Amorós and Molina, 2006, Zootaxa, 1302: 16, questioned the distinctiveness of this species from Eleutherodactylus vilarsi. In the Pristimantis  conspicillatus species group of Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 120, and Padial, Grant, and Frost, 2014, Zootaxa, 3825: 125. See account for Surinam population by Ouboter and Jairam, 2012, Amph. Suriname: 314-317. See Cole, Townsend, Reynolds, MacCulloch, and Lathrop, 2013, Proc. Biol. Soc. Washington, 125: 390, for brief account and records for Guyana.
