Comment

Confused with Bolitoglossa cuchumatana prior to its naming according to Campbell, Smith, Streicher, Acevedo, and Brodie, 2010, Misc. Publ. Mus. Zool. Univ. Michigan, 200: 22, who also noted (p. 32) that the species is probably closely related to Bolitoglossa rostrata. Köhler, 2011, Amph. Cent. Am.: 40–69, compared this species with others from Central America and provided a map and photograph. Raffaëlli, 2013, Urodeles du Monde, 2nd ed.: 344, provided a brief account, photograph, and range map.
