Similar species: R. coronata is smaller and has shorter hindlimbs (Glaw and Vences 2007).
Variation: It is possible that several species are subsumed under this name. Specimens from Anjanaharibe resemble the holotype, but other specimens collected at the type locality Marojejy are larger and more granular, and have a substantial genetic differentiation (Glaw and Vences 2007).
