Comment

In the Eleutherodactylus (Syrrhophus) pipilans group of the Eleutherodactylus longipes series, of Hedges, 1989, in Woods (ed.), Biogeograph. W. Indies: 318–319.

In the Eleutherodactylus (Syrrhophus) longipes species series, in the monotypic Eleutherodactylus pipilans species group of Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 93, and of Padial, Grant, and Frost, 2014, Zootaxa, 3825: 132. Grünwald, Reyes-Velasco, Franz-Chávez, Morales-Flores, Ahumada-Carrillo, Rodriguez, and Jones, 2021, Amph. Rept. Conserv., 15(e272): 1–35, provided key comparative characters (external morphology and advertisement call) for identification of members of their Eleutherodactylus nitidus group, recognized Eleutherodactylus nebulosus separate from Eleutherodactylus pipilans, and places Eleutheordactylus rubrimaculatus into synonymy. In the Eleutherodactylus (Syrrhophus) nitidus clade of Hernández-Austria, García-Vázquez, Grünwald, and Parra-Olea, 2022, Syst.
