Comment

See Duellman, 1982, Amphibia-Reptilia, 3: 159. The Hyla minima group should be placed within the Hyla parviceps group according to Duellman, 2001, Hylid Frogs Middle Am., Ed. 2: 859 Rodríguez and Duellman, 1994, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 22: 36, provided a brief account for the Iquitos region of northeastern Peru as Hyla riveroi. In the Dendropsophus minimus group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 92-93. Wiens, Kuczynski, Hua, and Moen, 2010, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 55: 871-882, on the basis of additional information transferred this species to the Dendropsophus microcephalus group. See comment under Dendropsophus coffeus. Köhler, Jungfer, and Reichle, 2005, J. Herpetol., 39: 48, suggested that more than one species is covered by this binominal. Ortega-Andrade and Ron, 2013, Zootaxa, 3652: 163-173, noted that at least some populations identified as Dendropsophus riveroi in Ecuador (and likely Peru) are properly assigned to Dendropsophus shiwiarum
