Comment

 Pombal, Bastos, and Haddad, 1995, Naturalia, São Paulo, 20: 213–225, reported on the advertisement call. In the Scinax ruber clade of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 96. See account by Heyer, Rand, Cruz, Peixoto, and Nelson, 1990, Arq. Zool., São Paulo, 31: 278-279. Haddad and Sazima, 1992, in Morellato (ed.), Hist. Nat. Serra do Japi: 194, suggested that more than one species existed under this binominal. Magrini, Carvalho-e-Silva, Béda, and Giaretta, 2011, Zootaxa, 3066: 37-51, reported on the call, as did Santos and Martins, 2017, Zootaxa, 4232: 58–585.
