CommentSynonymy after WELTON et al. 2010. 
EtymologyEtymology.—The specific epithet is chosen in recognition of the rapidly disappearing southern Leyte, Dinagat, and Agusan Del Norte Province indigenous people’s group, the Mamanwa (‘‘people of the mountains’’ or ‘‘first forest dwellers’’). Believed by some archeologists and anthropologists to be the oldest tribal group in the Philippines, the history of the Mamanwa is characterized by peace; seasonal movements of clan groups to follow food sources; and recently, mass tribal migration to escape logging and mining com- pany intrusion into their ancestral homelands.
