Rhacophorus calcaneus (Vietnam flying frog) is a species of frog in the Rhacophoridae family found with certainty only in Vietnam. It has been extensively confused with Rhacophorus robertingeri, making it difficult to know its true range.[2] Its natural habitats are tropical moist lowland undisturbed forests, moist montane forests, and rivers. It is threatened by habitat loss.[1]
