As for the single species.
Kurabayashi, Sumida, Yonekawa, Glaw, Vences, and Hasegawa, 2008, Mol. Biol. Evol., 25: 874-891, suggested that Wakea is the sister taxon of Mantella (although restricted taxon sampling may affect this result). Wollenberg, Vieites, Glaw, and Vences, 2011, BMC Evol. Biol., 11 (217) : 1-15, on the basis of a denser molecular analysis confirmed this relationship. Pyron and Wiens, 2011, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 61: 543-583, confirmed this relationship on the basis of Genbank sequences.
