Most similar to Rhacophorus gauni according to the original publication. Streicher, Harvey, Sheehy, Anders, and Smith, 2012, J. Herpetol., 46: 503-506, reported on larval morphology. O'Connell, Smith, Shaney, Arifin, Kurniawan, Sidik, and Fujita, 2018, Zool. Scripta, 47: 33–43, suggested on the basis of coalescent analysis that three lineages exist within this nominal species. O'Connell, Hamidy, Kurniawan, Smith, and Fujita, 2018, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 123: 101–112, discussed molecular phylogenetics.
