Comment

Removed from the synonymy of Rhinella crucifer by Baldissera, Caramaschi, and Haddad, 2004, Arq. Mus. Nac., Rio de Janeiro, 62: 265, who provided an account (as Bufo henseli). Maneyro and Kwet, 2008, Stuttgart. Beit. Naturkd., Ser. A, Neue Ser., 1: 95-121, briefly summarized the taxonomic, conservation, and geographic status, as well as a summary of what is know of natural history. Oliveira, Weber, and Napoli, Herpetol. J., 24: 229–236, reported on larval morphology of the chondrocranium and hypobranchial apparatus.
