Comment

Guayasamin, Castroviejo-Fisher, Trueb, Ayarzagüena, Rada, and Vilà, 2009, Zootaxa, 2100: 1–97, left Ikakogi incertae sedis within Centrolenidae, not being able to assign the taxon to either Centroleninae or Hyalinobatrachiinae. Pyron and Wiens, 2011, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 61: 543–583, suggested the placement of this taxon in Centroleninae on the basis of few data and terminals in their analysis.  Castroviejo-Fisher, Guayasamin, Gonzalez-Voyer, and Vilà, 2014, J. Biogeograph., 41: 71, suggested that this genus is the sister taxon of Hyalinobatrachiinae + Centroleninae.  Rada, Dias, Peréz-González, Anganoy-Criollo, Rueda-Solano, Pinto-Erazo, Mejía Quintero, Vargas-Salinas, and Grant, 2019, PLoS One, 14(5: e0215349): 1–46, discussed larval morphology.
