Comment

In Arthroleptini of Frost, Grant, Faivovich, Bain, Haas, Haddad, de Sá, Channing, Wilkinson, Donnellan, Raxworthy, Campbell, Blotto, Moler, Drewes, Nussbaum, Lynch, and Green, 2006, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 297: 234. Blackburn, 2008, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 49: 806-826, suggested that Scotobleps is only arguably placed as a member of Arthroleptini. Pyron and Wiens, 2011, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 61: 543-583, considered Scotobleps to be in their Astylosterninae
