Comment

Removed from the synonymy of Nanorana annandalii by Ohler and Dubois, 2006, Zoosystema, 28: 769-784, where it had been placed by Dubois, 1975, Bull. Mus. Natl. Hist. Nat. Paris, Ser. 3, Zool., 324: 1099. See account (as Rana gammiei) by Boulenger, 1920, Rec. Indian Mus., 20: 76. Recent accounts for Nanorana annandalii from India likely apply to this species according to XXX. Not addressed, and therefore not assigned to subgenus, by Che, Zhou, Hu, Papenfuss, Wake, and Zhang, 2010, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, 107: 13765-13770, and Che, Zhou, Hu, Papenfuss, Wake, and Zhang, 2010, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, Suppl. Inform., doi:10.1073/pnas.1008415107/-/DCSupplemental: 2. See Subba, Aravind, and Ravikanth, 2016, Check List, 13(1: 2033): 6, for Sikkim, India, records.
