Comment

Glaw and Vences, 2007, Field Guide Amph. Rept. Madagascar, Ed. 3: 218–219, provided an account (as Gephyromantis azzurrae). See Cocca, Andreone, Belluardo, Rosa, Randrianirina, Glaw, and Crottini, 2020, ZooKeys, 951: 142–143, for the confusing, even if brief, history of a mixup of names and perceptions of lineages that required the naming of this taxon.
