Retained in Rana by the original authors because the authors rejected the nomenclatural novelties of Dubois as based on a number of weaknesses summarized in Inger, 1996. Nevertheless, Inger, IN Inger and Tan, 1996, Raffles Bull. Zool., 44: 561, did follow the taxonomic arrangement of Dubois. See statement of geographic range, habitat, and conservation status in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph. World: 629.
