Silurana is sometimes represented as a genus separate from Xenopus -- we list it as a subgenus of Xenopus, following current usage in the literature. Both taxonomic schemes reflect the same phylogenetic tree, the only difference is in the assignment of the genus rank and the preferred scientific name of the Silurana species.
