Comment

Formerly confused with Rhacophorus bimaculatus. See comment under Rhacophorus cyanopunctatus. See accounts (under Rhacophorus bimaculatus or Philautus bimaculatus) by Inger, 1966, Fieldiana, Zool., 52: 344; and Berry, 1975, Amph. Fauna Peninsular Malaysia: 92-93. Malkmus, Manthey, Vogel, Hoffmann, and Kosuch, 2002, Amph. Rept. Mount Kinabalu: 207-209, provided an account. Chan-ard, 2003, Photograph. Guide Amph. Thailand: 156-157, provided a very brief account, map for Thailand, and photograph. Chan, Grismer, and Brown, 2018, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 127: 1010–1019, suggested, that the populations of this species in Berlumut, peninsular Malaysia were a different species from the populations in peninsular Thailand to the north.
