Comment

Köhler, Vences, D'Cruze, and Glaw, 2010, J. Zool., London, 282: 21-38, removed this taxon from the synonymy of Stumpffia psologlossa, where it had been placed by Blommers-Schlösser and Blanc, 1991, Faune de Madagascar, 75: 105, and which had been regarded as a nomen dubium by Guibé, 1978, Bonn. Zool. Monogr., 11: 115, and Glaw and Vences, 1992, Fieldguide Amph. Rept. Madagascar: 270. See account (as Stumpffia madagascariensis) by Rakotoarison, Scherz, Glaw, Köhler, Andreone, Franzen, Glos, Hawlitschek, Jono, Mori, Ndriantsoa, Raminosoa, Riemann, Rödel, Rosa, Vieites, Crottini, and Vences, 2017, Vert. Zool., Senckenberg, 67: 307–309, who noted a closely related unnamed species from Montagne de Français, Madagascar.
