Hylodes gollmeri Peters, 1863, Monatsber. Preuss. Akad. Wiss. Berlin, 1863: 409. Syntypes: ZMB 31608, 36301 according to Bauer, Günther, and Klipfel, 1995, in Bauer et al. (eds.), Herpetol. Contr. W.C.H. Peters: 46; ZMB 3168 considered holotype (lectotype by implication) by Rivero, 1961, Bull. Mus. Comp. Zool., 126: 60, and Savage, 1987, Fieldiana, Zool., N.S., 33: 9. Type locality: "Caracas"; in error, according to Rivero, 1961, Bull. Mus. Comp. Zool., 126: 60. See Savage, 1987, Fieldiana, Zool., N.S., 33: 9, 12, who discussed reasons for correcting the type locality to "Veragua" (= western Panama).

Lithodytes lanciformis Cope, 1877, Proc. Am. Philos. Soc., 17: 88. Syntypes: USNM (only one specimen noted in original publication) although Cochran, 1961, Bull. U.S. Natl. Mus., 220: 61, noted USNM 32324-45 as syntypes; USNM 32324 designated lectotype by Savage, 1987, Fieldiana, Zool., N.S., 33: 9. Type locality: "'West coast of Central America' without more specific locality". Synonymy by Taylor, 1952, Univ. Kansas Sci. Bull., 35: 714; Savage, 1987, Fieldiana, Zool., N.S., 33: 12.

English Names

Evergreen Robber Frog (Frank and Ramus, 1995, Compl. Guide Scient. Common Names Amph. Rept. World: 75).

Distribution

Evergreen forests of the lowlands and premontane slopes of eastern and central Panama (10-850 m), northwestern Panama (10–1450 m), and the lowlands of adjacent extreme southeastern Costa Rica and the premontane zone of northeastern Costa Rica (50–1500m); one record from the lowlands (262 m) of northeastern Costa Rica at Guapiles.

Comment

In the Eleutherodactylus gollmeri group of Savage. Removed from the synonymy of Eleutherodactylus guentheri by Cochran, 1955 "1954", Bull. U.S. Natl. Mus., 206: 273. See account by Savage, 1987, Fieldiana, Zool., N.S., 33: 9-14, who noted that earlier records for this species from Nicaragua are based on representatives of Eleutherodactylus noblei or Eleutherodactylus mimus, those from Honduras on Eleutherodactylus chac, Eleutherodactylus laticeps, and Eleutherodactylus rostralis. In the Eleutherodactylus (Craugastor) gollmeri group of Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 225. See account by Savage, 2002, Amph. Rept. Costa Rica: 245-246, who included this species in his Eleutherodactylus fitzingeri series, Eleutherodactylus gollmeri group. In the Craugastor laticeps species series of Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 38. In the subgenus Craugastor but not assigned to species series by Padial, Grant, and Frost, 2014, Zootaxa, 3825: 123. Ibáñez D., Jaramillo, and Solís, 2012, Zootaxa, 3184: 67-68, reported on the advertisement call. Köhler, 2011, Amph. Cent. Am.: 140–191, provided a key to the genera and species of Brachycephaloidea (= Craugastoridae, Eleutherodactylidae) in Central America and provided maps and photographs of the species, including this one.
