Most similar to Hyperolius fusciventris according to the original publication. See photograph, map, description of geographic range and habitat, and conservation status in Stuart, Hoffmann, Chanson, Cox, Berridge, Ramani, and Young, 2008, Threatened Amph. World: 286. Schiøtz, 1999, Treefrogs Afr.: 110–111, provided a brief account and considered the date of publication of the original to be 1999. Moreover this author regarded the call to be identical to that of Hyperolius wermuthi, with which he thought it might eventually be found to be conspecific. Channing and Rödel, 2019, Field Guide Frogs & Other Amph. Afr.: 172–173, provided a brief account and range map.
