English Names

Adung Lazy Toad (Frank and Ramus, 1995, Compl. Guide Scient. Common Names Amph. Rept. World: 86).


Known only from the Adung Valley of Myanmar.


This species is intermediate between Scutiger and Oreolalax, as delimited by Myers and Leviton, 1962, Copeia, 1962: 287-291, according to the original publication, which prompted Dubois, 1979, Rev. Suisse Zool., 86: 631-640, to consider Oreolalax to be a synonym of Scutiger, even though he continued to recognize the taxa separately at a different rank. See Khatiwada, Shu, Subedi, Wang, Ohler, Cannatella, Xie, and Jiang, 2019, Asian Herpetol. Res., 10: 139–157, for comment on morphology.
