Confused with Chiasmocleis ventrimaculata according to the original publication, where it was noted that most of the life history information published regarding Chiasmocleis ventrimaculata actually refers to Chiasmocleis royi. In the Chiasmocleis ventrimaculata clade of Peloso, Sturaro, Forlani, Gaucher, Motta, and Wheeler, 2014, Bull.
