Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern since, although its Extent of Occurrence is probably less than 20,000 km2, it occurs in an area of extensive, suitable habitat which appears not to be under threat, it has a presumed large population, and it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Hypsiboas (Faivovich, et al., 2005). Duellman, De la Riva and Wild (1997) placed this species in the synonymy of Hypsiboas balzani, but it was tentatively resurrected by Köhler (2000), who discussed the problems with the assignment of names. There is some doubt as to whether or not Hypsiboas callipleura is the correct name for this species, because of problems with gaining access to its type locality. As mentioned in the account for Hypsiboas balzani, which is a complex of more than one species, one of the available names is callipleura.
