Comment

Removed from the synonymy of Rhinella veraguensis by Padial, Chaparro, Köhler, and De la Riva, 2009, Zootaxa, 2115: 56-64, where it had been placed by Hoogmoed, 1990, in Peters and Hutterer (eds.), Vert. Tropics: 116; although this synonymy was disputed implicitly by Duellman and Schulte, 1992, Copeia, 1992: 162-172, but who provided no additional evidence.
