Note

Rana underwent a considerable revision by Frost et. al. and many species were transferred to other genera. However, some of these changes have not been accepted by other authors, and some of the changes by Frost et. al. have since been reversed as a result of phylogenetic analyses of virtually all the New World species (e.g., see Hillis and Wilcox 2005; Hillis 2007). The name Lithobates is restricted to the Rana palmipes group of Central and South America, and is considered a subgenus of Rana. All of the North and South American ranids are now placed in the genus Rana, along with the Rana temporaria group of Eurasia.
