Comment

See Dubois, 1999, J. South Asian Nat. Hist., 4: 7, for correction of statements in the literature regarding this species as well as the suggestion that this taxon might not be a member of Philautus. Bossuyt and Dubois, 2001, Zeylanica, 6: 58, made the transfer with additional comments on the taxonomic position of this species. Chanda, 2002, Handb. Indian Amph.: 167-168, and Sarkar and Ray, 2006, In Alfred (ed.), Fauna of Arunachal Pradesh, Part 1: 302, provided brief accounts (as Philautus shyamrupus). Das and Dutta, 2007, Hamadryad, 31: 154–181, noted no larval descriptions in the literature. Mathew and Sen, 2010, Pict. Guide Amph. NE India: 91-92, provided a brief characterization and a photograph. See account by Biju, Garg, Gokulakrishnan, Chandrakasan, Thammachoti, Ren, Gopika, Bisht, Hamidy, and Shouche, 2020, Zootaxa, 4878: 45–47.
