In the Cochranella granulosa group, according to Ruiz-Carranza and Lynch, 1991, Lozania, 57: 1-30. See account by Savage, 2002, Amph. Rept. Costa Rica: 362-363, in which he noted that the animals reported under this name by Hayes, Pounds, and Timmerman, 1989, Herpetol. Circ., 17: 40, and by Pounds and Fogden, 2000, in Nadkarni and Wheelwright (eds.), Monteverde Ecol. Conserv. Tropical Cloud Forest: 537, represent an undescribed species. Kubicki, 2007, Glass Frogs Costa Rica: 126-139, provided an account and detailed range map for Costa Rica. Jaramillo-Martinez, Valencia-Zuleta, Cardona-Botero, Castro-Herrera, and Cisneros-Heredia, 2015, Herpetol. Notes, 8: 161–163, discussed the previous records from Colombia and suggested that the record from Risaralda, Colombia, applies to an unnamed species, and some records from Antioquia and Chocó apply to Cochranella mache
