Comment

Philippine population discussed by Inger, 1954, Fieldiana, Zool., 33: 324-328. Taylor, 1962, Univ. Kansas Sci. Bull., 43: 417-420, discussed the Thailand populations; Inger, 1966, Fieldiana, Zool., 52: 183-184, provided an account for the Bornean population; and Iskandar, 1998, Amph. Java Bali: 67-68, discussed the Javan population. Discussed by Bourret, 1942, Batr. Indochine: 329-334. See also Berry, 1975, Amph. Fauna Peninsular Malaysia: 66-67, and Lim and Lim, 1992, Guide Amph. Rept. Singapore: 32. Dutta, 1992, Hamadryad, 17: 2, regarded all Indian records as representing Rana taipehensis, but Dutta, 1997, Amph.

Südostasiens: 107-108. Ferner, Brown, Sison, and Kennedy, 2001, Asiat. Herpetol. Res., 9: 45, suggested that this species is introduced on the Philippines. Records for Nepal, India, Myanmar, and Bangladesh refer to Rana tytleri according to Ohler and Mallick, 2003 "2002", Hamadryad, 27: 62, although these records were accpeted at face value by Dinesh, Radhakrishnan, Gururaja, and Bhatta, 2009, Rec. Zool. Surv. India, Occas. Pap., 302: 74. Reported for southwestern Cambodia by Ohler, Swan, and Daltry, 2002, Raffles Bull. Zool., 50: 465-481. Nutphund, 2001, Amph.
