 Márquez and Bosch, 1995, J. Zool. Syst. Evol. Res., 33: 185–192, reported on advertisement call. Gonçalves, Maia-Carvalho, Sousa-Neves, García-París, Sequeira, Ferrand de Almeida, and Martínez-Solano, 2015, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 93: 363–379, reported this taxon from France and considered this taxon a race of Alytes obstetricans as had earlier authors. Dufresnes and Martínez-Solano, 2020, Amphibia-Reptilia, 41: 105–112, discussed the mtDNA phylogeny of Alytes and a narrow hybrid zone of nominal Alytes obstetricans almogavarii and Alytes obstetricans pertinax in Catalonia, Spain. See discussion of taxonomy by Dufresnes and Martínez-Solano, 2020, Amphibia-Reptilia, 41: 105–112, and Speybroeck, Beukema, Dufresnes, Fritz, Jablonski, Lymberakis, Martínez-Solano, Razzetti, Vamberger, Vences, Vörös, and Crochet, 2020, Amphibia-Reptilia, 41: 145–146.
