Thought to be closely related to P. zeylanicus, and often treated as conspecific in the past, but no apparent hybridization in narrow area of sympatry in N India and SW Nepal. Possibly related also to P. faiostrictus and P. viridis, but not very closely. Race hodgsoni tends towards nominate in Peninsular Malaysia; other forms described include rana (Kumaon to WC Nepal), kutru (Odisha) and intermedius (Myanmar to Indochina), all now included within hodgsoni. Two subspecies currently recognized.
