This taxon was long forgotten, but Caramaschi, 2008, Rev. Brasil. Zool., 25: 523-528, discussed reasons for retaining it as a valid taxon within Leptodactylus, also noting that it is known only from the holotype and likey extinct. Unassigned to species group, or even to Leptodactylus, by de Sá, Grant, Camargo, Heyer, Ponssa, and Stanley, 2014, S. Am. J. Herpetol., 9(Spec. Issue 1): 1–123, and who provided a summary of relevant literature on p. 89 and implied that this nominal species is likely not a member of Leptodactylus, but is a member of Leptodactylidae.
