Comment

In the Eleutherodactylus (Eleutherodactylus) martinicensis series, Eleutherodactylus unistrigatus group of Lynch and Duellman, 1997, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 23: 223. Duellman, 1978, Misc. Publ. Mus. Nat. Hist. Univ. Kansas, 65: 91–91, provided a brief account. Rodríguez and Duellman, 1994, Univ. Kansas Mus. Nat. Hist. Spec. Publ., 22: 56–57, provided a brief account for the Iquitos region of northeastern Peru as Eleutherodactylus diadematus. In the Pristimantis (Pristimantis) unistrigatus species group of Hedges, Duellman, and Heinicke, 2008, Zootaxa, 1737: 128. Not assignable to a species group according to Padial, Grant, and Frost, 2014, Zootaxa, 3825: 127. See Duellman and Lehr, 2009, Terrest.-breeding Frogs in Peru: 175–176, for brief account. Brito-M., Batallas-Revelo, and Yánez-Muñoz, 2017, Neotropical Biodiversity, 3: 125–156. provided a record from Morona Santiago, Ecuador, and brief natural history notes. See brief account for Pristimantis cf. diadematus, likely unnamed species, for the Manu region, Peru, by Villacampa-Ortega, Serrano-Rojas, and Whitworth, 2017, Amph.

Segalla, Berneck, Canedo, Caramaschi, Cruz, Garcia, Grant, Haddad, Lourenço, Mângia, Mott, Nascimento, Toledo, Werneck, and Langone, 2021, Herpetol.
