Pseudophryne coriacea Keferstein, 1868, Arch. Naturgesch., 34: 272. Syntypes: Not stated, but presumably originally in ZIUG prior to transfer of this collection to ZFMK; ZFMK 28203-07 (6 specimens) according to Cogger, Cameron, and Cogger, 1983, Zool. Cat. Aust., Amph. Rept., 1: 26, who noted that ZFMK 28204 is a Pseudophryne bibronii. Parker, 1940, Novit. Zool., 42: 101, considered MCZ 1941 a syntype ("cotype"), presumably on exchange from ZIUG. Type locality: "Clarence-River, N[eu].-S[üd]. Wales", Australia. Also described as new by by Keferstein, 1868, Nachr. Ges. Wiss. Göttingen, 1868: 326.
