Comment

Resurrected from the synonymy of Phrynomantis (= Callulops of this catalogue) by Burton, 1986, Rec. S. Aust. Mus., 19: 405-450, where it had been placed by Zweifel, 1972, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 148: 476. Menzies, 2006, Frogs New Guinea & Solomon Is.: 252-254, provided a key and brief accounts for the species. Köhler and Günther, 2008, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 47: 353-365, were not able to include this taxon in their molecular analysis of Asterophryinae. Günther, Stelbrink, and von Rintelen, 2010, Zoosyst. Evol., Berlin, 86: 245-256, did include Mantophryne in their molecular analysis and placed it as the sister taxon of Hylophorbus. Pyron and Wiens, 2011, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 61: 543-583, in their study of Genbank sequences, did not address this taxon. Oliver, Rittmeyer, Kraus, Richards, and Austin, 2013, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 67: 600-607, reported on the molecular phylogenetics and biogeography of the species within the genus.
