Comment

See Matsui, 1979, Contrib. Biol. Lab. Kyoto Univ., 25: 300-302 (as Ooeidozyga magnapustulosus). Nutphund, 2001, Amph. Thailand: 91, provided a brief characterization but the photograph accompanying this is of a Limnonectes according to Ohler, 2003, Alytes, 21: 101. Niyomwan, Srisom, and Pawangkhanant, 2019, Field Guide Amph. Thailand: 300–301, provided a brief account (description, photographs, habitat, and range) for Thailand (in Thai). Makchai, Chuaynkern, Safoowong, Chuachat, and Cota, 2020, Amph. N. Thailand: 77, provided photographs, a brief account for Thailand, and a range map (apparently now out of date). Köhler, Vargas, Than, Schell, Janke, Pauls, and Thammachoti, 2021, Vert. Zool., Senckenberg, 71: 16, detailed the phylogenetic position, morphology, and advertisement call, and noted that previous statements of range were erroneous, presumably based on misleading morphological characteristics, and restricted it to the Khorat Plateau of northeastern Thailand.
