Hyla hallowellii Thompson, 1912
Hallowell's Tree Frog
Taxonomic Notes: Duellman et al. (Zootaxa 2016) treated two major clades as genera; AmphibiaWeb treats these two clades as subgenera(Hyla in the Old World; Dryophytes in the New World and East Asia), thus stabilizing traditional taxonomy.

Taxonomy - A population from Amamioshima Is. was once declared a subspecies H.h. schmidti but this is now thought to be invalid. One specimen from Iriomotejima Is. displays some unique morphology but no similar specimens have been collected.
