Comment

Retained in Rana because the authors reject the nomenclatural novelties of Dubois as based on a number of weaknesses summarized in Inger, 1996, Herpetologica, 52: 241-246. See statement of geographic range, habitat, and conservation status in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph. World: 629. : 1588-89, provided records for Sarawak, East Malaysia.
