See accounts by Bourret, 1942, Batr. Indochine: 370-371; and Taylor, 1962, Univ. Kansas Sci. Bull., 43: 471-473 (who suggested that this taxon might actually be synonymous with Rhacophorus leucomystax). Not mentioned by Dubois, 1992, Bull. Mens. Soc. Linn. Lyon, 61: 305-352, suggesting that he concurs with this synonymy. Nutphund, 2001, Amph. Thailand: 125, provided a brief characterization and photograph, which Ohler, 2003, Alytes, 21: 100-102, suggested was only allocated confidently to some species of the subgenus Sylvirana.
