Comment

See comment under Rhacophorus angulirostris. 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. Leong and Heok, 2002, Herpetol. Rev., 33: 319, provided the record for Brunei. Malkmus, Manthey, Vogel, Hoffmann, and Kosuch, 2002, Amph. Rept. Mount Kinabalu: 212-214, 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. Some references may confuse this species with the recently recognized Rhacophorus malkmusi of Sabah, which is known to be sympatric with this species on the eastern slope of Gunung Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.
