Comment

In the Eleutherodactylus nigrovittatus group of Lynch, 1989, Milwaukee Public Mus. Contrib. Biol. Geol., 79: 1-25. Phyzelaphryne miriamae Heyer, 1977, was considered a synonym by Lynch, 1980, Bull. Mus. Natl. Hist. Nat. Paris, Sect. A, Zool., 2: 299-301. Rodríguez and Duellman, 1994, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 22: 59–60, provided a brief account for the Iquitos region of northeastern Peru as Eleutherodactylus nigrovittatus. See comment under Phyzelaphryne miriamae. See brief account by Lynch and Duellman, 1980, Misc. Publ. Mus. Nat. Hist. Univ. Kansas, 69: 44-45. In the Eleutherodactylus (Eleutherodactylus) conspicillatus series, Eleutherodactylus nigrovittatus group of Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 229. 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. See Duellman and Lehr, 2009, Terrest.-breeding Frogs in Peru: 85-86, for brief account.
