In the Scinax catharinae clade of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 95–96. See discussion by Duellman and Wiens, 1992, Occas. Pap. Mus. Nat. Hist. Univ. Kansas, 151: 1–23. Hoogmoed and Gruber, 1983, Spixiana, München, Suppl., 9: 369, noted that the lost holotype of this species may have been confused with the types of Hyla nebulosa Spix due to similar habitus. Pimenta, Faivovich, and Pombal, 2007, Zootaxa, 1441: 35–49, discussed this taxon, designated a neotype, and provided an account. Mira-Mendes, Marciano, Ruas, Oliveira, and Solé, 2013, Zootaxa, 3647: 499–500, reported on the advertisement call. Camurugi, Mercês, Nunes, and Juncá, 2013, Zootaxa, 3686: 497–499, reported on larval morphology.  Freitas, Abegg, Dias, and Moraes, 2018, Herpetol. Notes, 11: 59–72, provided a record from the Serra da Jibóia, Bahia, Brazil. In the Ololygon catharinae group of Araujo-Vieira, Lourenço, Lacerda, Lyra, Blotto, Ron, Baldo, Pereyra, Suárez-Mayorga, Baêta, Ferreira, Barrio-Amorós, Borteiro, Brandão, Brasileiro, Donnelly, Dubeux, Köhler, Kolenc, Leite, Maciel, Nunes, Orrico, Peloso, Pezzuti, Reichle, Rojas-Runjaic, Silva, Sturaro, Langone, Garcia, Rodrigues, Frost, Wheeler, Grant, Pombal, Haddad, and Faivovich, 2023, S.
