Comment

The sister taxon of Sylvirana nigrovittata but most similar to Sylvirana malayana according to the original publication. Niyomwan, Srisom, and Pawangkhanant, 2019, Field Guide Amph. Thailand: 382–383, provided a brief account (description, photographs, habitat, and range) for Thailand (in Thai). Poyarkov, Nguyen, Popov, Geissler, Pawangkhanant, Neang, Suwannapoom, and Orlov, 2021, Russ. J. Herpetol., 28 (3A): 53, suggested that this species is expected in northern Tenasserim, Thailand.
