Comment

Grismer, 2006, Zootaxa, 1327: 1327: 1–27, reported that specimens previously reported as Ansonia malayana from Tasan, Chumphon Province, Thailand, are actually of this species. Wood, Grismer, Ahmad, and Senawi, 2008, Herpetologica, 64: 321–340, provided comparative information for this and other species from the Malayan Peninsula. Chan-ard, Cota, and Makchai, 2011, Amph. E. Region Thailand: 127, detailed the range in Thailand. See Poyarkov, Nguyen, Popov, Geissler, Pawangkhanant, Neang, Suwannapoom, and Orlov, 2021, Russ. J. Herpetol., 28 (3A): 1–110, for comments on systematics, conservation, and biogeography.
