Rana latopalmata Boulenger, 1882, Cat. Batr. Sal. Coll. Brit. Mus., Ed. 2: 464. Syntypes: BMNH (at least 6 specimens), by original designation. Type locality: "Tenasserim", Myanmar. Synonymy with Amolops marmoratus by Boulenger, 1920, Rec. Indian Mus., 20: 217. The revision by Dever, Fuiten, Konu, and Wilkinson, 2012, Copeia, 2012: 57-76, logically removed this name from the synonymy of Amolops marmoratus but did not address it. Considered a possible senior synonym of Amolops panhai by Wang, Bhattarai, Wu, Che, and Siler, 2020, Zootaxa, 4819: 143–158.
