dc.description.abstractWe investigated diversity in the Amolops marmoratus species complex within Myanmar using both molecular and morphological characters from recently collected specimens. Based on congruence between multivariate analyses of quantitative morphological characters and phylogenetic analyses of nucleotide variation in the 16S ribosomal gene conducted on 43 out of 182 frogs examined, we recognize A. marmoratus for specimens from the states of Mon and Shan and northern Tanintharyi Division and designate a neotype for this species; resurrect A. afghanus (Gnther, 1858) from synonymy with A. marmoratus for specimens from the northern state of Kachin and designate a lectotype for this species; recognize A. panhai for specimens from Tanintharyi, a new country record; and describe a new species for specimens from the western states of Chin and Rakhine, and Sagaing Division. © 2012 by the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists.en_US
