anfibio montano (ver explicación)
Explanation:
En realidad, no creo que montane amphibian corresponda al nombre de la especie, sino que se trate de una redacción en la que se menciona un "tipo de anfibio montano" y entre paréntesis se agrega el nombre científico.
Dicho de otra forma, sería como decir: "...un animal doméstico (canis familiaris)", es decir, un nombre no tiene que ver con el otro directamente.

Aquí agrego algunos enlaces en los que se menciona "montane amphibian" en tres regiones muy distintas del planeta, y en otros se refiere a la "montane amphibian fauna", por lo que no se puede tratar de una especie:
