Taxonomic Notes

This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Hypsiboas (Faivovich, et al., 2005). It was previously known as Hyla biobeba, but recent taxonomic research has shown that the older name of Hyla lundii is correct (Caramaschi and Napoli, 1994).
