    1. Reviewed by Joern Koehler    Oct 5, 2010

    Action: changed name from "Hypsiboas balzani" to "Hypsiboas sp. "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "Judging from the photo alone this could represent Hypsiboas marianitae. However, proper identification of theses species by morphology alone is very difficult, as demonstrated by K√∂hler et al. (2020) Zoologica Scripta, doi:10.1111/j.1463-6409.2010.00448.x.
    Hypsiboas balzani is certainly known only from three localities in the Departamento La Paz, Bolivia, near Apolo."
