Comment

Assignment to Amolops based on association of topotypic larvae that were not grown to adulthood; the generic assignment is therefore provisional (DRF). Ahmed, Das, and Dutta, 2009, Amph. Rept. NE India: 40, provided a brief account for northeastern India. Mathew and Sen, 2010, Pict. Guide Amph. NE India: 70, provided a brief characterization and photographs.
