Comment

Considered a synonym of Leptobrachium hasseltii by Inger, 1966, Fieldiana, Zool., 52: 29, but considered a distinct species; without discussion, by Dubois, 1980, Bull. Mens. Soc. Linn. Lyon, 49: 476, Dubois, 1983, Alytes, 2: 147-153, and Inger and Tan, 1996, Raffles Bull. Zool., 44: 551-574. See also discussion of taxonomic confusion by Matsui, Nabhitabhata, and Panha, 1999, Japan.
