Comment

In the Hyla parviceps group according to the original publication and Duellman, 2001, Hylid Frogs Middle Am., Ed. 2: 859. Rodríguez and Duellman, 1994, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 22: 23, provided a brief account as Hyla allenorum. 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. In the Dendropsophus parviceps group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 93.  Fouquet, Noonan, Blanc, and Orrico, 2011, Zootaxa, 3035: 59-67, found this species (as Dendropsophus allenorum) to be distantly related to the Dendropsophus parviceps group sensu stricto, and relatively basal within Dendropsophus.
