Comment

Removed from the synonymy of Hyla pseudopseudis by Pombal and Caramaschi, 1995, Bol. Mus. Nac., Rio de Janeiro, N.S., Zool., 363: 1, where it had been placed by Lutz, 1973, Brazil. Spec. Hyla: 24. In the Bokermannohyla pseudopseudis group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 83-84. Eterovick and Sazima, 2004, Anf. Serra do Cipó: 55-56, provided a photograph and brief account (as Hyla saxicola). Nascimento, Chaves, Leite, Eterovick, and Santos, 2018, PLoS One, 13 (11: e0206732): 1–19, reported on molecular phylogeography noting four deeply divergent mtDNA clades that, if corroborated by nuDNA, calls, and morphology might be distinct species.
