Comment

In the Plectrohyla bistincta group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 105. Formerly in the Hyla miotympanum group of Duellman, 1970, Monogr. Mus. Nat. Hist. Univ. Kansas: 380-384, and Duellman, 2001, Hylid Frogs Middle Am., Ed. 2: 919-921. See comment under Plectrohyla cyclada. See photograph, map, description of geographic range and habitat, and conservation status in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph. World: 267. Kaplan and Heimes, 2011, J. Herpetol., 45: 463-464, reported on the larva and rejected the identification (including that it is a member of Plectrohyla) of the larva associated with this species by Duellman, 2001, Hylid Frogs Middle Am., Ed. 2: 921. Lemos-Espinal and Dixon, 2013, Amphibians and Reptiles of San Luis Potosí: 55-56, provided an account for San Luis Potosí, Mexico. Lemos-Espinal and Smith, 2015, Check List, 11(1642): 1–11, noted the occurrence of the species in Hidalgo, Mexico, without providing a specific locality.
