Subgenus Microhyla, Microhyla berdmorei group. Records from the Malay Peninsula and Singapore are referrable to Microhyla mantheyi. Matsui, 2011, Zootaxa, 2814: 33-49, noted that the holotype of Microhyla borneensis is conspecific with that holotype of Microhyla nepenthicola and placed them in synonymy. The more-widespread larger species that had been confused with this species was renamed Microhyla malang. Dehling, 2010, Salamandra, 46: 114-116, reported on the advertisement call. Firdaus, Ratih, Karima, Kusuma, and Suastika, 2018, Bioinform. Biomed. Res. J., 1: 1–6, reported on the mtDNA phylogenetic relationships of the species of Microhyla within Sumatra, Java, Borneo, and peninsular Malaysia, suggesting this species to be the sister of Microhyla malang. In the Microhyla achatina species group of Garg, Suyesh, Das, Jiang, Wijayathilaka, Amarasinghe, Alhadi, Vineeth, Aravind, Senevirathne, Meegaskumbura, and Biju, 2018 "2019", Vert. Zool., Senckenberg, 69: 1–71.
