Most closely related to Platymantis batantae according to the original publication. Menzies, 2006, Frogs New Guinea & Solomon Is.: 89, provided a brief account. Portik, Streicher, and Wiens, 2023, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 188 (107907): 25, placed this species phylogenetically, as Platymantis bimaculata, within Cornufer, but without taking any taxonomic action and apparently without regard to the earlier paper by Brown, Siler, Richards, Diesmos, and Cannatella, 2015, Zool. J. Linn. Soc., 174: 140, where the same conclusion had been reached.
