Abstract
We present morphological evidence that supports the placement of “Hyla” chlorostea Reynolds and Foster, 1992 (previously of uncertain affinities) in the Hyloscirtus armatus group. Also we continue to recognize it as a valid species, pending a revision of populations currently associated with the name Hyloscirtus armatus. Furthermore, we report the presence of a mental gland in adult males of the H. armatus group. Given that the presence of a mental gland is the only putative synapomorphy for the Hyloscirtus bogotensis group, its presence in the H. armatus group raises concerns about the monophyly of the former group.
