Confused with Hylarana chalconota prior to its naming according to the original publication. Nutphund, 2001, Amph. Thailand: 118, provided a brief characterization and photograph (as Rana chalconota) of what may be this species. Zug and Mulcahy, 2020 "2019", Amph. Rept. S. Tanintharyi: 53, provided a brief account for South Tanintharyi, peninsular Myanmar.
