Rana aurea Lesson, 1827 

Lesson, 1827. In Duperrey (ed.), Voyage Coquille, Zool., 2: 60; pl. 7; fig. 2. Current name: Litoria aurea ( Lesson, 1827) 

Paralectotype: possibly RMNH 1814, 1 spec. Loc.: Blauwe bergen, Nieuw Holland [Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia]. Don.: R.P. Lesson.

Remarks. Roux-Estève (1979: 26) designated MNHNP 4857 from Port Jackson as lectotype. The lectotype and a paralectotype ( MNHNP 537) are in the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris. However, in accordance with the type locality given in the original publication (“la rivière Macquarie a Bathurst, au-delà des montagnes Bleues”), RMNH 1814 was probably also part of the type series described by Lesson.
