Distribution

Eastern Brazil from Minas Gerais to northern Rio Grande do Sul; northeastern Argentina; likely into adjacent southeastern Paraguay.

Comment

In the Hyalinobatrachium parvulum group, according to Ruiz-Carranza and Lynch, 1991, Lozania, 57: 1-30. Duellman, 1993, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 21: 52, suggested that the specimens from Argentina (Contreras, 1982, Hist. Nat., Corrientes, 2: 191) need to be confirmed. Contreras, 1982, Hist. Nat., Corrientes, 2: 191, as Centrolenella vanzolinii, and Stetson, 2001 "2000", Cuad. Herpetol., 14: 167, provided Argentinian records. See account by Heyer, Rand, Cruz, Peixoto, and Nelson, 1990, Arq. Zool., São Paulo, 31: 251-252. Izecksohn and Carvalho-e-Silva, 2001, Anf. Municipio Rio de Janeiro: 33, provided a brief account and photo. Cisneros-Heredia and McDiarmid, 2007, Zootaxa, 1572: 82, excluded this species from Hyalinobatrachium and it is therefore listed here as "Hyalinobatrachium" uranoscopum to denote that it is not formally attached to any genus within Centroleninae. Canelas and Bertoluci, 2007, Iheringia, Zool., 97: 21-26, provided a record for the Serra do Caraça, southern end of the Serra do Espinhaço, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Brusquetti and Lavilla, 2006, Cuad. Herpetol., 20: 27, suggested that this species likely occurs in Paraguay. Machado, Moreira, Silva, Becker, and Mesquita, 2010, Check List, 6: 410-411, provided a record for eastern Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Cruz, Feio, and Caramaschi, 2009, Anf. Ibitipoca: 68-69, provided photographs and a brief account for Parque Estadual do Ibitipoca, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Savaris, Lampert, Lucas, Peres, Orsato, Rezende, and Argerich, 2011, Check List, 7: 841-842, provided new records for Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
