Comment

See Duellman and Lehr, 2009, Terrest.-breeding Frogs in Peru: 80–85, for accounts of the Peruvian species. Pyron and Wiens, 2011, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 61: 543–583, placed it provisionally as incertae sedis within Craugastoridae although their tree suggests that it may be the sister taxon of their Strabomantinae. Padial, Grant, and Frost, 2014, Zootaxa, 3825: 53, transferred this taxon to Holoadeninae.
