Köhler and Günther, 2008, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 47: 353–365, suggested on the basis of molecular evidence that Genyophryne is relatively basal in the asterophryine tree and possibly the sister taxon of Liophryne schlaginhaufeni. Pyron and Wiens, 2011, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 61: 543–583, confirmed this result.
