Synonymy (with Pomatops valvifera) by Parker, 1934, Monogr. Frogs Fam. Microhylidae: 64. Synonymy with Callulops robustus by Zweifel, 1972, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 148: 493-494. Synonymy doubted by Kraus, 2012, Herpetologica, 68: 263; Günther, 2013, Zootaxa, 3641: 278, noted that although this taxon is not the same as Callulops robustus or Callulops valvifer, it is not clear what it is until more material is available.
