Comment

In the Rhacophorus (Rhacophorus) reinwardtii group of Dubois, 1987 "1986", Alytes, 5: 77; see comment under Rhacophorus for dissenting opinion regarding the recognition of this group. See account by Bourret, 1942, Batr. Indochine: 448-449. See Inger, 1966, Fieldiana, Zool., 52: 293-297, for account. See identification table by Manthey and Grossmann, 1997, Amph. Rept. Südostasiens: 122-123, to compare this species to other rhacophorids of the Sunda Shelf region. Malkmus, Manthey, Vogel, Hoffmann, and Kosuch, 2002, Amph. Rept. Mount Kinabalu: 209-210, provided an account. See statement of geographic range, habitat, and conservation status in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph. World: 635, who noted that the records for Rhacophorus dulitensis for Sumatra are now referred to Rhacophorus prominanus. Das, 2007, Amph. Rept. Brunei: 76, provided a photograph and brief account. Haas, Hertwig, Krings, Braskamp, Dehling, Min, Jankowski, Schweizer, and Das, 2012, Zootaxa, 3328: 1-19, reported on larval morphology. Dehling and Dehling, 2013, Check List, 9: 425-426, provided a range extension to western Borneo and provided a range map.
