Comment

Confused with Rana andersoni previous to its description. In the Odorrana (Odorrana) andersonii group of Fei, Ye, Huang, Jiang, and Xie, 2005, in Fei et al. (eds.), Illust. Key Chinese Amph.: 126. Nguyen, Ho, and Nguyen, 2005, Checklist Amph. Rept. Vietnam: 28, provided specific localities for Vietnam (as Odorrana hmongorum). See discussion by Ohler, 2007, Alytes, 25: 55-74. See map, description of geographic range and habitat, and conservation status (as Rana jingdongensis) in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph. World: 505. Fei, Hu, Ye, and Huang, 2009, Fauna Sinica, Amph. 3: 1261-1266, provided an account, figures, and map for China, placed it in their Odorrana andersonii group. Fei, Ye, and Jiang, 2010, Colored Atlas of Chinese Amph.: 334, provided a brief account including photographs. Fei, Ye, and Jiang, 2012, Colored Atlas Chinese Amph. Distr.: 376–377, provided an account, photographs, and a range map for China.  Ziegler, Tran, Nguyen, Perl, Wirk, Kulisch, Lehmann, Rauhaus, Nguyen, Lê, and Vu, 2014, Herpetol. Notes, 7: 185–201, provided a record (as Odorrana cf jingdonensis) for Ha Giang Province and briefly discussed the range.
