Synonymy petersi ametarsia

Taxonomic identity of Cochranella petersi Goin, 1961
and Centrolenella ametarsia Flores, 1987


Abstract.– We assess the taxonomic status of Hyalinobatrachium petersi and Cochranella ametarsia based on the examination of type material and recently collected specimens. We conclude that the material assigned to them is morphologically undistinguishable from two previously described species (Cochranella pulverata and Cochranella oyampiensis, respectively) and, therefore, are junior synonyms.
