Comment

In the Hylodes lateristrigatus group according to the original publication  Weber and Caramaschi, 2013, Zootaxa, 3635: 557–568, reported on comparative larval morphology of the species. Vidigal, Montesinos, and Giaretta, 2021, J. Herpetol., 55: 253–264, reported on geographic variation in 16S mtDNA and advertisement calls, and provided a range map noting that the Parque Nacional do Itatiaia, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, locality provided as Hylodes sazimai by Nuin and Garcia, 2002, Herpetol. Rev., 33: 221, differs in call and mtDNA from Hylodes sazimai and may represent an unnamed species inasmuch as it is also distinctive in its mtDNA from Hylodes amnicola, Hylodes magalhaesi, Hylodes ornatus, Hylodes perere, and Hylodes regius
