Comment

Removed from the synonymy of Rana livida by Bain, Lathrop, Murphy, Orlov, and Ho, 2003, Am. Mus. Novit., 3417: 17, where it had been placed by Boulenger, 1887, Ann. Mus. Civ. Stor. Nat. Genova, Ser. 2, 5: 484; Boulenger, 1890, Fauna Brit. India, Rept. Batr.: 462; Boulenger, 1920, Rec. Indian Mus., 20: 214; Bourret, 1942, Batr. Indochine: 371 (with Polypedates smaragdinus by Boulenger, 1882, Cat. Batr. Sal. Coll. Brit. Mus., Ed. 2: 69). See account by Bain, Lathrop, Murphy, Orlov, and Ho, 2003, Am. Mus. Novit., 3417: 17-24. See comments under Rana livida for references to this species as Rana livida. Bain and Nguyen, 2004, Am. Mus. Novit., 3453: 12, provided the record for Ha Giang Province, Vietnam. Nguyen, Ho, and Nguyen, 2005, Checklist Amph. Rept. Vietnam: 29, provided specific localities (as Rana livida) for Vietnam. Stuart, Inger, and Voris, 2006, Biol. Lett., 2: 470-474, provided molecular data and suggested on this basis that nominal Odorrana chloronota represents several unnamed species, of which his Thailand populations represented at least two. Lalremsanga, Sailo, and Hooroo, 2007, Hamadryad, 31: 359, provided a record for Mizoram, northeastern India. Wogan, Vindum, Wilkinson, Koo, Slowinski, Win, Thin, Kyi, Oo, Lwin, and Shein, 2008, Hamadryad, 33: 87, provided records from Bago Division, Kachin State, Rakhine State, Sagaing Division, Shan State, and Tanintharyi Division, Myanmar. Mathew and Sen, 2010, Pict. Guide Amph. NE India: 86, provided a brief characterization and a photograph. See account (as Odorrana cf. chloronota), photograph, and map for Vietnam in Vassilieva, Galoyan, Poyarkov, and Geissler, 2016, Photograph. Field Guide Amph. Rept. Lowland S. Vietnam: 108–109, who noted that this is likely a species complex within Vietnam.
