Comment

Removed from the synonymy of Hyla nana by Langone and Basso, 1987, Comun. Zool. Mus. Hist. Nat. Montevideo, 11: 1-17 (who noted that it might be in the Hyla microcephala group), and De la Riva, Márquez, and Bosch, 1997, Bonn. Zool. Beitr., 47: 175-185, where it had been placed by Lutz, 1973, Brazil. Spec. Hyla: 223. De la Riva, Köhler, Lötters, and Reichle, 2000, Rev. Esp. Herpetol., 14: 57, consider this species possibly to occur in Bolivia, although Köhler, 2000, Bonn. Zool. Monogr., 48: 60, noted that the record for Bolivia was based on a specimen of Hyla tritaeniata. In the Dendropsophus microcephalus group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 91-92.
