See comment under Kaloula conjuncta, with which this species was until recently considered conspecific. See brief notes for Mindanao, Philippines, by Sanguila, Cobb, Siler, Diesmos, Alcala, and Brown, 2016, ZooKeys, 624: 36–37, who suggested on the basis of the results of Blackburn, Siler, Diesmos, McGuire, Cannatella, and Brown, 2013, Evolution, 67: 2631–2646, that all nominal subspecies of Kaloula conjuncta likely deserve to be recognized as species. But, these authors only formally so considered the Mindanao populations, Kaloula meridionalis.
