Comment

See Inger, 1954, Fieldiana, Zool., 33: 236-239, for account; R.F. Inger IN Frost, 1985, Amph. Species World: 38, regarded Nectophryne signata (Borneo) and Hylaplesia brevipes (Philippines) to be separate species. See comment under Pelophryne signata. Malkmus, Manthey, Vogel, Hoffmann, and Kosuch, 2002, Amph. Rept. Mount Kinabalu: 84, discussed the confusion surrounding the recognition/non-recognition of Pelophryne signata.
