Description

Rhacophorus norhayatii is described based on material obtained from the Gunung Panti Forest Reserve, and the species is found throughout the Malay Peninsula (west Malaysia and southern Thailand) and provisionally in Sumatra (Chan & Grismer, 2010:42). Rhacophorus norhayatii is similar to Rhacophorus reinwardtii. However, the latter is presently restricted to Borneo and Java.

Rhacophorus norhayatii is distinguished from Rhacophorus reinwardtii in lacking spots on its back, having a higher degree of interdigital web pigmentation on its hands and feet, and having rusty brown markings on its flanks. The records from Gunung Pulai are believed to be the first from this forest reserve, which is the southernmost area of lowland, primary forest in Peninsular Malaysia.
