>>Were you asking about the work being done on King Cobras now and where there taxonomy sits? Because to be honest, I think it is still fairly up in the air and there will be some big splits.

Yes that's what I meant. From some things I have read there will be at least 6 different species or subspecies (can't remember).

I guess I stopped studying the nomenclature awhile ago, and many only recognize Lithobates as a subgenera of Rana. From what I have read Frost's work is under scrutiny (like all taxonomic changes)and since I am only a hobbyist I don't feel the need to accept every little change they make.

I do think most reptile and amphibian nomenclature should be revised, but getting everyone on the same page seems impossible.
One reason I don't agree with Frost....
