Comment

Reichle and Köhler, 1996, Herpetofauna, Weinstadt, 18: 32-34, reported the Bolivian record. Napoli and Caramaschi, 1999, Bol. Mus. Nac., Rio de Janeiro, N.S., Zool., 407: 1-11, suggested that this binominal covers more than one species. In the Dendropsophus microcephalus group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 91-92. Brusquetti and Lavilla, 2006, Cuad. Herpetol., 20: 28, suggested that this species likely occurs in Paraguay. Teixeira, Giaretta, and Pansonato, 2013, Zootaxa, 3669: 189-192, reported on the advertisement call.
