Records from Colombia prior to 1985 are in error according to Duellman and Cannatella, 1985, In Frost (ed.), Amph. Species World: 82), although subsequently reported from the Villavicencio region of Colombia by Lynch, 2006, Caldasia, 28: 138. In the Hyalinobatrachium fleischmanni group, according to Ruiz-Carranza and Lynch, 1991, Lozania, 57: 1–30. Cisneros-Heredia and McDiarmid, 2005, Check List, 1(1): 20–21, provided discussed the range and provided new Ecuadorian localities. Cisneros-Heredia and McDiarmid, 2007 "2006", Herpetotropicos, Mérida, 3: 21–28, provided a map for Ecuador. Cisneros-Heredia and McDiarmid, 2007, Zootaxa, 1572: 56, discussed the species in Ecuador and noted the relevant literature. Castroviejo-Fisher, Padial, Chaparro, Aguayo-Vedia, and De la Riva, 2009, Zootaxa, 2143: 24–44, assigned Peruvian records to Hyalinobatrachium carlesvilai. Castroviejo-Fisher, Moravec, Aparicio, Guerrero-Reinhard, and Calderón, 2011, Zootaxa, 2798: 64–68, verified a record for Departamento Pando, Bolivia, by molecular analysis.
