Removed from the synonymy of Eleutherodactylus milesi by Campbell, 1994, Herpetologica, 50: 398-411 (who provided an account), where it had been placed by Lynch, 1965, Herpetologica, 21: 102–113. McCranie and Wilson, 1997, Alytes, 14:147–174, provided an account and discussed the application of the name. In the Eleutherodactylus (Craugastor) milesi group, according to Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 232. See account by McCranie and Wilson, 2002, Amph. Honduras: 437–440, who noted previous confusion with Craugastor fecundus. McCranie, 2007, Herpetol. Rev., 38: 37, summarized the departmental distribution in Honduras. See map, description of geographic range and habitat, and conservation status in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph. World: 311. Köhler, 2011, Amph. Cent. Am.: 140–191, provided a key to the genera and species of Brachycephaloidea (= Craugastoridae, Eleutherodactylidae) in Central America and provided maps and photographs of the species, including this one. McCranie, 2018, Cat. Am. Amph. Rept., 918: 1–10, provided a detailed account.
