Comment

In the Eleutherodactylus dolops group, according to Lynch, 1989, Milwaukee Public Mus. Contrib. Biol. Geol., 79: 1-25. In the Eleutherodactylus (Eleutherodactylus) conspicillatus series, Eleutherodactylus dolops group of Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 223. 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 Hypodactylus. Mueses-Cisneros, 2005, Caldasia, 27: 235, provided a record for Putumayo, Colombia. See photograph, map, description of geographic range and habitat, and conservation status (as Eleutherodactylus dolops) in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph.
