Comment

See Pyburn, 1978, Proc. Biol. Soc. Washington, 91: 123-131, for taxonomic status. See Hoogmoed and Gruber, 1983, Spixiana, München, Suppl., 9: 365, for resurrection of this name from the synonymy of Hyla punctata, where it had been placed by Duellman, 1974, Occas. Pap. Mus. Nat. Hist. Univ. Kansas, 27: 10. Barrio-Amorós, 1999 "1998", Acta Biol. Venezuelica, 18: 30, provided the Venezuelan record. In the Hypsiboas punctatus group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 88.
