Some comments

I don't doubt it one bit to be honest...Based on the relatively close location of the two frogs respective location of collection I wouldn't doubt the population doesn't or isn't connected some how.

Could it be that there are two groups of collectors that call each frog the other name? Don't know just throwing that out there...
