Comment

This genus is composed of the former Hyla circumdata, Hyla martinsi, and Hyla pseudopseudis groups of previous authors. Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 83-84, recognized three species groups noted in the individual accounts, the Bokermannohyla circumdata group, Bokermannohyla claresignata group, Bokermannohyla martinsi group, and Bokermannohyla pseudopseudis group. In Cophomantini of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 75. See comments by Faivovich, Lugli, Lourenço, and Haddad, 2009, Herpetologica, 65: 303-310, on various diagnostic characters of species of Bokermannohyla. Leite and Eterovick, 2010, J. Herpetol., 44: 431-440, discussed aspects of comparative morphology of larvae. Catroli, Faivovich, Haddad, and Kasahara, 2011, J. Herpetol., 45: 120-128, reported on the remarkable homogeneity of karyotypes among three species groups of Bokermannohyla and Aplastodiscus and Hypsiboas.
