Comment

Not assigned to species group by Lynch, 1968, Copeia, 1968: 875-876. In the Eleutherodactylus (Eleutherodactylus) binotatus series, Eleutherodactylus binotatus group of Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 225. See discussion of this species by Heyer and Muñoz, 1999, Proc. Biol. Soc. Washington, 112: 1-18. Padial and De la Riva, 2005, J. Herpetol., 39: 372-379, provided a new record in eastern Bolivia, and discussed the arguable relationships of this taxon. Heinicke, Duellman, and Hedges, 2007, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, 104: 10092-10097, removed this species from nominal Eleutherodactylus but did not provide a new generic name. See account by Padial, Chaparro, and De la Riva, 2008, Zool. J. Linn. Soc., 152: 758-755. Padial, Chaparro, Castroviejo-Fisher, Guayasamin, Lehr, Delgado C., Vaira, Teixeira, Aguayo-Vedia, and De la Riva, 2012, Am. Mus. Novit., 3752: 30, implied that this nominal species may be a synonym of Oreobates crepitans once geographic variation is assessed.
