Comments:Photograph, distributional and biological information provided by Flannery (1990b:197). Phallic morphology described by Lidicker (1968). Some authors recognized alticola as a species (Lidicker, 1968; Lidicker and Brylski, 1987; Tate, 1951), and Flannery (1995a:280) noted that "alticola differs in a number of ways from the typical form, and further research is needed to determine its true status." Chromosomal data (2n = 46) reported by Donnellan (1987).
