Comment

See brief account by Bourret, 1942, Batr. Indochine: 291-293, and account by Dubois, 1987 "1986", Alytes, 5: 48. Stuart, 1999, in Duckworth et al. (eds.), Wildlife in Lao PDR: 48, reported the species in Laos (as Paa microlineata). Nguyen, Ho, and Nguyen, 2005, Checklist Amph. Rept. Vietnam: 20, provided specific localities for Vietnam and (p. 148) a photograph. 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.
