Comment

See Taylor, 1962, Univ. Kansas Sci. Bull., 43: 336-339, for synonymy (as Pedostibes hosii) and discussion as well as Inger, 1966, Fieldiana, Zool., 52: 93-96. See Berry, 1975, Amph. Fauna Peninsular Malaysia: 54-55, and Bourret, 1942, Batr. Indochine: 159-160, for accounts (as Pedostibes hosii). See brief account and photo by Manthey and Grossmann, 1997, Amph. Rept. Südostasiens: 40-41 (as Pedostibes hosii). Nutphund, 2001, Amph. Thailand: 74, provided a brief characterization and photograph (as Pedostibes hosii). Chan-ard, 2003, Photograph. Guide Amph.
