Comment

Schwartz and Fowler, 1973, Stud. Fauna Curaçao and other Caribb. Is., 43: 101, noted that without knowledge of calls or habitat this species cannot be readily separated from Eleutherodactylus gossei. In the Eleutherodactylus gossei group according to Crombie, 1977, Proc. Biol. Soc. Washington, 90: 194–204, Hedges, 1989, in Woods (ed.), Biogeograph. W. Indies: 321 (within his Eleutherodactylus (Euhyas) luteolus series), and Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 226. In the Eleutherodactylus (Euhyas) luteolus species series, Eleutherodactylus luteolus species group, Eleutherodactylus gossei species subgroup of Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 71–72. In the Eleutherodactylus (Euhyas) luteolus species series, Eleutherodactylus luteolus species group of Padial, Grant, and Frost, 2014, Zootaxa, 3825: 130. See photograph, map, description of geographic range and habitat, and conservation status in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph.
