Comment

Removed from the synonymy of Hylinae, by Duellman, Marion, and Hedges, 2016, Zootaxa, 4104: 10 (who considered it to be the sister taxon of their redelimited Hylinae), where it had been placed by implication of Jordan, 1876, Man. Vert. N. USA: 189. Dubois, Ohler, and Duellman, 2017, Bionomina, 11: 49–61, discussed the nomenclatural difficulties surrounding the use of the name Acridinae Mivart, along with some possible solutions.
