Comment

See comment under Mantellidae. Frost, Grant, Faivovich, Bain, Haas, Haddad, de Sá, Channing, Wilkinson, Donnellan, Raxworthy, Campbell, Blotto, Moler, Drewes, Nussbaum, Lynch, Green, and Wheeler, 2006, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 297: 244, considered Laliostominae to be a tribe, Laliostomini, the sister taxon of Mantellini in an enlarged Mantellinae. Glaw and Vences, 2006, Organisms Divers. Evol., 6: 236-253, considered the evidence of Laliostominae and Mantellinae to form a monophyletic group to be equivocal and retained Laliostominae and Mantellinae (the ranking followed here), although their results were consistent with the taxonomy of Frost et al., 2006. Glaw and Vences (2006) also provided a discussion of the morphological evidence in support of the monophyly of these two taxa and did not reject them as closest relatives. Kurabayashi, Sumida, Yonekawa, Glaw, Vences, and Hasegawa, 2008, Mol. Biol. Evol., 25: 874-891, provided molecular evidence that Boophinae is the sister taxon of Laliostominae, with Tsingymantis equivocally attached to that inclusive group. Pyron and Wiens, 2011, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 61: 543-583, provided a tree based on Genbank sequences that confirmed earlier discoveries of relationship among subfamilies but did not include Tsingymantis.
