Rana sanguinea Boettger, 1893, Zool. Anz., 16: 364. Holotype: SMF 6221 (formerly 1062.a) according to Mertens, 1967, Senckenb. Biol., 48(A): 45; MCZ 9935-38 were apparently considered syntypes in error by Barbour and Loveridge, 1929, Bull. Mus. Comp. Zool., 69: 331. Type locality: "Insel Culion, Calamianes-Gruppe, Philippinen".

Rana varians Boulenger, 1894, Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., Ser. 6, 14: 86. Syntypes: BMNH (3 specimens), by original designation. Type locality: "Palawan", Philippines. Taylor, 1920, Philipp. J. Sci., 16: 220, and Inger, 1954, Fieldiana, Zool., 33: 328, and Zhao and Adler, 1993, Herpetol. China: 132, but considered a distinct species by Liu and Hu, 1961, Tailless Amph. China: 201-203, and Dubois, 1992, Bull. Mens. Soc. Linn. Lyon, 61: 341, and who also recognized Rana nigrotympanica for the Chinese populations formerly recognized under the name Rana varians.

Comment

See accounts by Boulenger, 1920, Rec. Indian Mus., 20: 158; Inger, 1954, Fieldiana, Zool., 33: 328-331. See comment under Rana nigrotympanica. Song, Jang, Zou, and Shi, 2002, Herpetol. Sinica, 9: 69-79, reported this species for Hainan I., China, but this is likely a misidentification, probably based on Hylarana nigrotympanica.
