Comment

Apparently the sister taxon of Euphlyctis hexadactylus according to the original publication. Subramanian, Dinesh, and Radhakrishnan, 2013, Atlas of Endemic Amph. W. Ghats: 43, provided a very brief characterization, photograph, and dot map. Khajeh, Mohammadi, Ghorbani, Meshkani, Rastegar-Pouyani, and Torkamanzehi, 2014, Acta Herpetol., Firenze, 9: 159–166, suggested that South India and Sri Lankan populations of nominal Euphlyctis cyanophlyctis actually refer to this nominal species.
