Comment

Confused with Odorrana livida prior to its description according to the original publication, which provided a discussion of relevant literature and similar species. Chuaynkern, Inthara, Duengkae, and Songchan, 2010, Thailand Nat. Hist. Mus. J., 4: 29–33, discussed range extensions of Uttaradit and Phetchabun province, Thailand, including photographs and measurements, along with a map that suggests its eventual discovery in nearby Laos. Ampai, Rujirawan, Arkajag, McLeod, and Aowphol, 2015, Zootaxa, 3981: 508–520, reported on larval morphology. Niyomwan, Srisom, and Pawangkhanant, 2019, Field Guide Amph. Thailand: 350–351, provided a brief account (description, photographs, habitat, and range) for Thailand (in Thai). Makchai, Chuaynkern, Safoowong, Chuachat, and Cota, 2020, Amph. N.
