Comment

Account provided by Lynch and Myers, 1983, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 175: 537-545. See account by Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 111-112, who place it in the Eleutherodactylus (Craugastor) fitzingeri group. Savage, 2002, Amph. Rept. Costa Rica: 226, included this species in his Eleutherodactylus fitzingeri species series, Eleutherodactylus fitzingeri species group. In the Craugastor fitzingeri series, Craugastor fitzingeri species group of Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 37, and Padial, Grant, and Frost, 2014, Zootaxa, 3825: 122. Köhler, 2011, Amph.
