Comment

Removed from the synonymy of Eleutherodactylus fenestratus by Heyer and Muñoz, 1999, Proc. Biol. Soc. Washington, 112: 1, where it had been placed by Lynch, 1980, Am. Mus. Novit., 2696: 6. Padial and De la Riva, 2005, J. Herpetol., 39: 372-379, discussed the species and confirmed its status. Tenatively placed the Pristimantis (Pristimantis) peruvianus species group by Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 126, noting that it may actually be in the Pristimantis conspicillatus group. Siqueira, Aguiar, Pansonato, Giaretta, Strüssmann, Martins, and Recco-Pimentel, 2009, Genet. Mol. Biol., 32: 47-476, reported on the divergent karyotype (at least when considered a Pristimantis) of this species and reported the species from a second locality. Padial, Chaparro, Castroviejo-Fisher, Guayasamin, Lehr, Delgado C., Vaira, Teixeira, Aguayo-Vedia, and De la Riva, 2012, Am. Mus. Novit., 3752: 29-30, provided information on habitat and life history as well as assignment on the basis of molecular data to Oreobates. See comment under Oreobates heterodactylus.
