Comment

 Rodríguez and Duellman, 1994, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 22: 37, provided a brief account for the Iquitos region of northeastern Peru as Hyla rossalleni. See De la Riva and Duellman, 1997, Amphibia-Reptilia, 18: 433-436. See comment under Hyla leali. De la Riva, Köhler, Lötters, and Reichle, 2000, Rev. Esp. Herpetol., 14: 57, and Köhler, 2000, Bonn. Zool. Monogr., 48: 69, consider this species possibly to occur in Bolivia. Likely within the Hyla parviceps group according to Duellman, 2001, Hylid Frogs Middle Am., Ed. 2: 859. In the Dendropsophus leucophyllatus group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 91. Lynch, 2005, Rev. Acad. Colomb. Cienc. Exact. Fis. Nat., 29: 581-588, provided a record for southeastern Colombia.
