Comment

In the Eleutherodactylus nigrovittatus group according to the original publication. Heinicke, Duellman, and Hedges, 2007, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, 104: 10092-10097, removed this species from nominal Eleutherodactylus but did not provide a new generic name; see comment under Isodactylus. See Duellman and Lehr, 2009, Terrest.-breeding Frogs in Peru: 80-82, for account.
