Abstract

We report on the finding of the Günther Toad Duttaphrynus hololius from Visakhapatnam and discuss aspects of its distribution based on our species distribution modeling. We also provide data on historically collected specimens and refine its intra-specific variation, provide an up-to-date chresonymy and comment on the validity of earlier reported diagnosis. Lastly, we remark on some misidentification-mediated dubious southern Indian records of another, related congener, the Marbled Toad D. stomaticus and correct some misallocations by referring them to another syntopic congener, the Dwarf Toad D. scaber.
