Comment

In the Hyalinobatrachium fleischmanni group according to the original publication. Señaris and Ayarzagüena, 2005, Rev. Taxonom. Fam. Centrolenidae de Venezuela: 200-207, provided a review of the morphology, natural history, and range of this species. Castroviejo-Fisher, Moravec, Aparicio, Guerrero-Reinhard, and Calderón, 2011, Zootaxa, 2798: 64-68, verified a record for Departamento Pando, Bolivia, by molecular analysis and noted that it seems to be impossible to distinguish this species from Hyalinobatrachium munozorum and Hyalinobatrachium ruedai on the basis of morphological characteristics. Castroviejo-Fisher, Vilà, Ayarzagüena, Blanc, and Ernst, 2011, Zootaxa, 3132: 1-55, provided a detailed account. See Cole, Townsend, Reynolds, MacCulloch, and Lathrop, 2013, Proc. Biol. Soc. Washington, 125: 383, for brief account and records for Guyana. Venâncio, Souza, and Kokubum, 2014, Check List, 10: 1184–1186 , provided a range extension to Acre, Brazil, and a spot distribution map.  Fouquet, Vacher, Kadosoe, Jairam, and Ouboter, 2015, Herpetol. Notes, 8: 63–68, reported the species from the Sipaliwini Nature Reserve, southern Surinam. Oliveira, Hernández-Ruz, and Carvalho, 2015, Herpetol. Rev., 46: 377–378, provided a record for extreme northern Pará.
