Comment

Removed from the synonymy of Anomaloglossus stepheni by Grant, Frost, Caldwell, Gagliardo, Haddad, Kok, Means, Noonan, Schargel, and Wheeler, 2006, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 299: 158, where it had been placed by Kok, 2001, Herpetol. Bull., London, 73: 1. Lescure and Marty, 2000, Collect. Patrimoines Nat., Paris, 45: 82-83, provided a brief account and photo (as Colostethus baeobatrachus). See account for Surinam population by Ouboter and Jairam, 2012, Amph. Suriname: 28-29. In the Anomaloglossus stepheni group of Vacher, Kok, Rodrigues, Lima, Lorenzini, Martinez, Fallet, Courtois, Blanc, Gaucher, Dewynter, Jairam, Ouboter, Thébaud, and Fouquet, 2017, Mol. Phylogenet.
