Prior to the revision by Glaw and Vences, 2006, Organisms Divers. Evol., 6: 236-253, in the Mantidactylus (Blommersia) argenteus group of Dubois, 1992, Bull. Mens. Soc. Linn. Lyon, 61: 311. Andreone and Randriamahazo, 1997, Rev. Fr. Aquar. Herpetol., 24: 105, disputed the inclusion of this species in Blommersia but did not suggest an alternate placement. Glaw and Vences, 2007, Field Guide Amph. Rept. Madagascar, Ed. 3: 208-209, provided an account. See statement of geographic range, habitat, and conservation status (as Mantidactylus bertini) in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph. World: 624.
