Comment

Related to Hyla decipiens according to the original publication. Bastos and Pombal, 1996, Amphibia-Reptilia, 17: 325–331, provisionally placed this species in the Hyla microcephala group. Pugliese, Alves, and Carvalho-e-Silva, 2000, Alytes, 18: 73–80, doubted its assignment to this group. Izecksohn and Carvalho-e-Silva, 2001, Anf. Municipio Rio de Janeiro: 51, provided a brief account of this species (or something very similar) and photo. In the Dendropsophus microcephalus group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 91–92. Santana, Mesquita, and Garda, 2011, Zootaxa, 2997: 67–68, reported on the advertisement call. Dubeux, Silva, Nascimento, Gonçalves, and Mott, 2019, Rev. Nordestina Zool., 12: 18–52, summarized the literature on larval morphology. See Dubeux, Nascimento, Lima, Magalhães, Silva, Gonçalves, Almeida, Correia, Garda, Mesquita, Rossa-Feres, and Mott, 2020, Biota Neotrop., 20 (2: e20180718): 1–24, for characterization and identification of larvae north of the Rio São Francisco in the Atlantic Forest of northeastern Brazil. In the Dendropsophus decipiens group of Orrico, Grant, Faivovich, Rivera-Correa, Rada, Lyra, Cassini, Valdujo, Schargel, Machado, Wheeler, Barrio-Amorós, Loebmann, Moravec, Zina, Solé, Sturaro, Peloso, Suárez, and Haddad, 2021, Cladistics, 37: 73–105. Reported from the Environmental Protection Area of Catolé and Fernão Velho, Alagoas, Brazil, by Dubeux, Nascimento, Gonçalves, and Mott, 2021, Pap. Avulsos Zool., São Paulo, 61 (e20216176): 1–10, who provided a key to the frogs of that region.
