Figure 5

Materials examined. Seroja Camp (04°39.415′N, 101° 16.333′E), 2–5 July 2019 (GKR016, 028–035, 068–071, HC1033–34).

Identification. Vomerine teeth present; a pair of boney, fang-like, mandibular processes anteriorly; tympanum distinct; skin on dorsum smooth, sometimes with short, longitudinal ridges on the back and flanks; supra- tympanic fold distinct; dorsolateral fold absent; venter smooth; dorsum brown to gray; lips usually with alter- nating dark and light bars; some individuals have a light vertebral stripe from snout to vent and a similar stripe on the inner side of the tibia to the ankle; with or with- out dark blotches on flanks and indistinct crossbars on limbs; venter white, sometimes yellowish on the belly. These characters are in agreement with Berry (1975).

Remarks. Frogs were commonly observed in shallow, slow moving, and stagnant portions of streams, while some individuals were found on dry ground adjacent to streams. Multiple breeding pairs were seen along the shallow, peripheral parts of steams where males were heard calling to nearby females.
