See comments by Sunyer, Páiz, Dehling, and Köhler, 2009, Herpetol. Notes, 2: 189–202, regarding Nicaraguan populations (as Cruziohyla calcarifer). Donnelly, Guyer, Krempels, and Braker, 1987, Copeia, 1987: 247–250, reported on larval morphology (as Agalychnis calcarifer), this being of the subsequently named Cruziohyla silviae according to Gray, Taupp, Denés, Elsner-Gearing, and Bewick, 2021, Herpetol.
