Comment

Glaw and Vences, 2006, Organisms Divers. Evol., 6: 236-253, and Kurabayashi, Sumida, Yonekawa, Glaw, Vences, and Hasegawa, 2008, Mol. Biol. Evol., 25: 874-891, suggested that this taxon is the sister taxon of Gephyromantis + Mantidactylus. Wollenberg, Vieites, Glaw, and Vences, 2011, BMC Evol. Biol., 11 (217) : 1-15. confirmed this arrangement as did Pyron and Wiens, 2011, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 61: 543-583, in their molecular tree based on Genbank sequences.
