Cryptic Species of a Cascade Frog from Southeast Asia: Taxonomic Revisions and Descriptions of Six New Species
Six new cryptic species belonging to the Rana chloronota complex from Vietnam are described; each of the new species occurs in sympatry with at least one other member of the complex.
Two new species of Leptolalax (Anura: Megophryidae) from northern Vietnam
Two new species of Leptolalax are described from two mountain ranges in northern Vietnam that are less than 150 km apart and one of the new species has a higher cellular DNA content than sympatric L. pelodytoides.
Large-scale molecular phylogeny, morphology, divergence-time estimation, and the fossil record of advanced caenophidian snakes (Squamata: Serpentes)
An expanded molecular phylogenetic analysis of Caenophidia is provided and it is suggested that all extant families of Colubroidea and Elapoidea composing the present-day endoglyptodont fauna originated rapidly within the early Oligocene–between approximately 33 and 28 Mya–following the major terrestrial faunal turnover known as the “Grande Coupure” and associated with the overall climate shift at the Eocene-Oligocene boundary.
Phylogeny of the Cyrtodactylus irregularis species complex (Squamata: Gekkonidae) from Vietnam with the description of two new species.
The number of described species of bent-toed geckos of the Cyrtodactylus irregularis species complex in Vietnam has increased from one to eight in the last six years. We combined morphological and
The Phylogenetic Relationships of the Chinese and Vietnamese Waterfall frogs of the genus Amolops
Four clades of waterfall frogs were resolved and the hypothesis Of evolutionary relationships placed Amolops chapaensis and Huia nasica in the genus Odorrana.

03. Taxonomic chaos in Asian ranid frogs: an initial phylogenetic resolution
An investigation of the phylogenetic relationships of most major groups of Asian ranids using mitochondrial DNA sequences from the 12S, tRNAVal and 16S genes results in a paraphyletic taxonomy.
