Comment

This species is intermediate between Scutiger and Oreolalax, as delimited by Myers and Leviton, 1962, Copeia, 1962: 287-291, according to the original publication, which prompted Dubois, 1979, Rev. Suisse Zool., 86: 631-640, to consider Oreolalax to be a synonym of Scutiger, even though he continued to recognize the taxa separately at a different rank. Not mentioned by Li, Zhao, and Dong, 2010, Amph. Rept. Tibet:, so presumably not recorded in China.
