Comment

Discussed by Duellman and Gray, 1983, Herpetologica, 39: 333-358. Removed from the synonymy of Flectonotus on phylogenetic grounds by Duellman, Jungfer, and Blackburn, 2011, Phyllomedusa, 10: 15-29, where it had been placed by Weygoldt and Carvalho-e-Silva, 1991, Amphibia-Reptilia, 12: 67-80.. Blackburn and Duellman, 2013, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 68 : 709-714, confirmed that Fritziana and Flectonotus are only distantly related.
