Removed from the synonymy of Hylarana by Oliver, Prendini, Kraus, and Raxworthy, 2015, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 90: 187, where it had been placed by Che, Pang, Zhao, Wu, Zhao, and Zhang, 2007, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 43: 3. See comment under Hylarana for access to relevant revisionary literature. Recovered as monophyletic, the sister taxon of Chalcorana, by Dubois, Ohler, and Pyron, 2021, Megataxa, 5: 422. Regardless, the authors placed Chalcorana as a junior synonym of Hylarana due to the general lack of monophyletic genera within the hylaranine group.
