Comment

See discussion by Brown, McGuire, and Diesmos, 2000, Herpetologica, 56: 81-104. See statement of geographic range, habitat, and conservation status (as Rana luzonensis) in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph. World: 633. Fuiten, Welton, Diesmos, Barley, Oberheide, Duya, Rico, and Brown, 2011, Herpetologica, 67: 99, suggested that the biogeographic distribution of nominal Sanguirana luzonensis warranted careful systematic evaluation.
