The frog was discovered on the island of Cerro Chucanti in eastern Panama by an international team led by Abel Batista and Konrad Mebert and funded by a number of organizations, including the Rainforest Trust, a nonprofit environmental organization. .

In 2018, the Rainforest Trust auctioned off the naming rights for several scientifically newly identified species for the organization's 30th anniversary. An auction winner decided to name this new rain frog species in honor of Greta Thunberg and her work in the fight against climate change.
