Comment

In the Eleutherodactylus (Craugastor) rugulosus group according to Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 231. See Campbell and Savage, 2000, Herpetol. Monogr., 14: 284–286, for account. See account by Savage, 2002, Amph. Rept. Costa Rica: 250–251, who included this species in his Eleutherodactylus fitzingeri series, Eleutherodactylus rugulosus group. In the Craugastor (Craugastorpunctariolus species series of Padial, Grant, and Frost, 2014, Zootaxa, 3825: 123.On page 840, noted that specimens previously allocated to this species from Costa Rica, are actually referrable to Craugastor rhyacobatrachus and that records from the Atlantic drainage apply to Craugastor obesus. See photograph, map, description of geographic range and habitat, and conservation status in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph.
