In the subgenus Yaotriton, Tylototriton wenxianensis species group, according to the original publication, where comparative morphology, morphometrics, and molecular markers were detailed. The authors also discussed phylogenetics generally of Tylototriton, agreeing with other authors that the number of named species likely underestimates the true species diversity in China.
