Comment

Recuero, Martínez-Solano, Parra-Olea, and García-París, 2006, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 39: 293–304, partitioned this taxon out of former Pseudacris regilla (where it had been placed by Yarrow, 1882, Bull. U.S. Natl. Mus., 24: 1-249) on the basis of mtDNA and allozyme evidence. Grismer, 2002, Amph. Rept. Baja California: 75-78, provided an account for the Mexican population (as part of Pseudacris regilla). Escobar, Youmans, and Grismer, 2002, Herpetol. Rev., 33: 317, provided a subsequent Baja California record (as Pseudacris regilla), closing a distributional gap. Welsh, Clark, Franco-Vizcaíno, and Valdéz-Villavicencio, 2010, Southwest. Nat., 55: 581–585, discussed the range (as Pseudacris regilla) in northern Baja California, Mexico. Barrow, Ralicki, Emme, and Lemmon, 2014, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 75: 78–90, suggested that the distinction of this taxon, drawn on the basis of mtDNA, was not supported by nuDNA analysis. This suggests that this taxon will be ultimately included into the synonymy of Pseudacris regillaAltig and McDiarmid, 2015, Handb. Larval Amph. US and Canada: 208–209, provided an account of larval morphology and biology.
