Comment

Removed from the synonymy of Ingerophrynus biporcatus by Inger and Tan, 1996, Raffles Bull. Zool., 44: 555, where it had been placed by Inger, 1954, Fieldiana, Zool., 33: 228; in the Bufo biporcatus group by implication. See account by Berry, 1975, Amph. Fauna Peninsular Malaysia: 47 (as Bufo biporcatus). See also identification table by Manthey and Grossmann, 1997, Amph. Rept. Südostasiens: 26, to compare this species with others in the Sunda Shelf region. Malkmus, Manthey, Vogel, Hoffmann, and Kosuch, 2002, Amph. Rept. Mount Kinabalu: 76-77, provided an account. Chan-ard, 2003, Photograph. Guide Amph. Thailand: 90-91, provided a very brief account, map for Thailand, and photograph. Das, Jankowski, Makmor, and Haas, 2007, Mitt. Hamburg. Zool. Mus.
