Comment

See Garcia, Vinciprova, and Haddad, 2003, Herpetologica, 59: 350-363, for elevation from subspecies status under Hyla pulchella and account; these authors noted that Hyla joaquini is more similar to Hyla semiguttata than to Hyla pulchella. In the Hyla pulchella group of Faivovich, Garcia, Ananias, Lanari, Basso, and Wheeler, 2004, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 32: 945. In the Hypsiboas pulchellus group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 87-88. See comments by Antunes, Faivovich, and Haddad, 2008, Copeia, 2008: 170-190.
