Comment

In the Eleutherodactylus auriculatus group, according to Shreve and Williams, 1963, Bull. Mus. Comp. Zool., 129: 302-342; Schwartz, 1966, Bull. Mus. Comp. Zool., 133: 396 (who recognized three subspecies); and Schwartz, 1969, Stud. Fauna Curaçao and other Caribb. Is., 30: 99-115; near Eleutherodactylus abbotti. Reviewed by Schwartz, 1979, Cat. Am. Amph. Rept., 224: 1-2. Powell, 1993, Herpetol. Rev., 24: 135-137, suggested that Eleutherodactylus audanti notidodes and Eleutherodactylus audanti melatrigonum warranted binominal status. In the Eleutherodactylus (Eleutherodactylus) auriculatus section, Eleutherodactylus montanus series, unassigned to species group, according to Hedges, 1989, in Woods (ed.), Biogeograph. W. Indies: 328. In the Eleutherodactylus (Eleutherodactylus) abbotti series, Eleutherodactylus abbotti group according to Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 220. In the Eleutherodactylus (Eleutherodactylus) auriculatus species series, Eleutherodactylus abbotti group of Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 54, Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 54, and of Padial, Grant, and Frost, 2014, Zootaxa, 3825: 129. See photograph, map, description of geographic range and habitat, and conservation status (in the sense of considering Eleutherodactylus notidodes and Eleutherodactylus melatrigonum as subspecies) in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph. World: 319. Henderson and Powell, 2009, Nat. Hist. Rept. Amph. W. Indies: 37–38, summarized the natural history literature.
