Comment

For discussion (as Hyla boulengeri) see Duellman, 1970, Monogr. Mus. Nat. Hist. Univ. Kansas: 200-204; Savage and Heyer, 1969, Rev. Biol. Tropical, 16: 1–127; and Duellman, 1972, Zool. Meded., Leiden, 47: 180–181. Lips and Savage, 1996, Proc. Biol. Soc. Washington, 109: 17–26, included this species in a key to the tadpoles found in Costa Rica. In the Scinax ruber clade, Scinax rostratus group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 96–97. See also note by Duellman, 2001, Hylid Frogs Middle Am., Ed. 2: 854. See account by Savage, 2002, Amph. Rept. Costa Rica: 343–345. Vera Candioti, 2007, Zootaxa, 1600: 1–175, reported on detailed larval morphology. McCranie, 2007, Herpetol. Rev., 38: 38, summarized the departmental distribution in Honduras. See comments by Sunyer, Páiz, Dehling, and Köhler, 2009, Herpetol. Notes, 2: 189–202, regarding Nicaraguan populations. Köhler, 2011, Amph. Cent. Am.: 262–264, provided a brief summary of natural history and identification key for the species of Scinax in Central America and provided a range map and photograph for this species.. Sunyer, Martínez-Fonseca, Salazar-Saavedra, Galindo-Uribe, and Obando, 2014, Mesoam. Herpetol., 1: 170, provided a record for the department of Boaco, Nicaragua.
