Please see the account of this species by Hernandez (alternative tab). Since the Hernandez account was written, the population of this species from northeastern Thailand has been described as a new species, Tylototriton phukaensis, which becomes the fifth species salamander from Thailand. Hernandez and Pomchote (2020 Bull Soc Herp. France) report T. uyenoi from 15.05° N at 1,507, near the Myanmar border. This is the southernmost locality for salamanders in Asia.
