Most similar to Batrachyla taeniata according to the original publication. Díaz-Páez and Carreño, 2002, Herpetol. Rev., 33: 218, commented on the range. Pincheira-Donoso and Díaz-Páez, 2003, Herpetol. Rev., 34: 256, outlined the range. Rabanal, 2010, Check List, 6: 287-288, provided a spot-map of the species and discussed the range, as well as noting that the population from Alao Island might actually represent Batrachyla taeniata.
