Comment

R.I. Crombie IN Frost, 1985, Amph. Species World: 47, reported Rhinella merianae (as Bufo granulosus merianae) to overlap Rhinella nattereri (as Bufo granulosus nattereri). Narvaes and Rodrigues, 2009, Arq. Zool., São Paulo, 40: 1-73, revised the Rhinella granulosa group, recognized this species, and provided an account.
