Not assigned to species group in the original publication. Thongproh, Sumontha, Chuaynkern, Chuaynkern, Ratree, Duengkae, Phetcharat, Maiprom, and Ungprombundith, 2018, Maejo Internatl. J. Sci. Technol., Sansai Thailand, 12: 36–50, discussed the range and natural history of this species in Thailand and noted that records of Rhacophorus orlovi from Thailand are referable to this species. Niyomwan, Srisom, and Pawangkhanant, 2019, Field Guide Amph. Thailand: 462–463, 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 J. Herpetol., 28 (3A): 60, cited (as Rhacophorus jarujini) an unpublished report by Ohler and Goutte dated 2010, which does not appear in their literature cited. Given that DRF cannot verify the source of this record and no vouchers are cited I refrain from including Cambodia within the range of this species.
