Etymology“This species is named in honor of Professor Jimmy A. McGuire for his extensive and insightful contributions into the evolutionary biology of some of the more complex components of the herpetofauna of Southeast Asia and for his tireless field work and observations at Bukit Larut which ultimately resulted in the discovery of other new species of amphibians and reptiles.”
