The sole member of the Hyla chlorostea group according to Duellman, De la Riva, and Wild, 1997, Sci. Pap. Nat. Hist. Mus. Univ. Kansas, 3: 31. Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 111, could not assign this taxon to any of the tribes within the Hylinae, but could exclude it from Hyla sensu stricto. Faivovich and De la Riva, 2006, Copeia, 2006: 785-791, allocated the species to the Hyloscirtus armatus group.
