Comment

Most similar to Megophrys major and Megophrys auralensis according to the original publication. Neang, Chhin, Meang, and Hun, 2014 "2013", Cambodian J. Nat. Hist., 2013: 66–72, reported the species from Phnom Samkos Wildlife Sanctuary, Cambodia, and noted that previous records of Megophrys auralensis from this locality were misidentified.
