摘要

Taxonomic identification of two Taiwanese salamanders, Hynobius sonani (Maki, 1922), and H. formosanus Maki, 1922, was clarified. Based on the descriptions and measurement data in the original description, we confirmed that H. sonani has been treated as H. formosanus and vice versa, which might have been caused by confusion of sampling localities of the two species. Because we could not find the holotypes of the two species and concluded these were lost, we herein assign neotypes for these species for precluding future taxonomic confusion.
