Comment

See Myers and Duellman, 1982, Am. Mus. Novit., 2752: 15, and Duellman, 2001, Hylid Frogs Middle Am., Ed. 2: 878–879, who provided an account and transferred the former Hyla lancasteri group into the Hyla pictipes group. See comment under Hyla calypsa with which this was formerly confused. See account by Savage, 2002, Amph. Rept. Costa Rica: 311–312. In the Isthmohyla pictipes group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 103. Köhler, 2011, Amph. Cent.
