Saikia et al (2022) synonomized A. yarlungzangbo with A. gerbillus. "Due to the shallow genetic divergence between A. yarlungzangbo and A. gerbillus and the close geographic proximity between the respective type localities, we would like to propose a synonymy under Article 23 (principle of priority) of the International Code for Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN) warranting the examination of the types of the newly described species, which would result in the name Amolops gerbillus (Annandale, 1912) (described as Rana gerbillus Annandale, 1912) taking precedence over Amolops yarlungzangbo K. Jiang, Y. Wang, C. Lik, S. Qi, P. Li, J. Che, 2020."
