Rana multidenticulatus (Chou & Lin, 1997)
Taxonomic Notes: Fei et al. (2000) in transferred this species from Rana to Pseudoamolops, but we retain it in Rana. This species is closely related to Rana sauteri, for which it was mistaken for in the past. There is a narrow integration zone between these two taxa (Chou and Lin 1997).
