In recent works, Blommersia, Boehmantis, Gephyromantis, Guibemantis, Spinomantis and Wakea are often separated from Mantidactylus.
New species continue to be described at a rate of a few per year on average. Recently-described species are often not formally placed in Mantidactylus; this may eventually be done but until then, names like "Mantidactylus azzurrae" for example are nomina nuda and must not be used.
Recently-described species not placed in Mantidactylus:
- Gephyromantis azzurrae Mercurio & Andreone, 2007
