Comment

Most similar to Eleutherodactylus crenunguis according to the original publication. Lynch, Ruiz-Carranza, and Ardila-Robayo, 1994, Occas. Pap. Mus. Nat. Hist. Univ. Kansas, 170: 1-42, considered this species to be in the Eleutherodactylus cerasinus group. See account by Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 119-120, who placed it in the Eleutherodactylus (Eleutherodactylus) conspicillatus series, Eleutherodactylus cerasinus group. Savage, 2002, Amph. Rept. Costa Rica: 227, included this species in his Eleutherodactylus cerasinus series, Eleutherodactylus cerasinus group. In the Pristimantis (Hypodictyon) rubicundus group of Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 116, and in the Pristimantis ridens species group of Padial, Grant, and Frost, 2014, Zootaxa, 3825: 126.
