Comment

Mueses-Cisneros, 2003, Caldasia, 25: 422, provided a brief account and the first record for Colombia. Mueses-Cisneros, 2005, Caldasia, 27: 232, provided additional localities. See photograph, map, description of geographic range and habitat, and conservation status in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph. World: 201, in which D.F. Cisneros-Heredia, suggested that the Colombia and Ecuador populations might represent different species. See note by Guayasamin and Funk, 2009, Zootaxa, 2220: 41-66, on this species at the Yanayacu Biological Station, Napo, Ecuador. Páez-Moscoso and Guayasamin, 2012, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 65: 805-822, suggested that this name covers more than one species.
