Natural history notes.
Northeast India to peninsular Myanmar and Thailand.
We included two individuals from Mon (MBM- USNM-FS 35753, MBM- USNM-FS 35755). These and our Tanintharyi specimens ranged from 0-2.5% sequence divergence from each other based on COI data and were placed in two COIBINs (Mon and Tanintharyi) and were placed in a 16S clade with other individuals (DQ650612-615) identified as O. livida from neighboring Thailand and Myanmar ( Stuart et al. 2006a). Two other specimens from GenBank (AB200949-50) identified as O. supranarina , from the Ryukyu Islands, Japan, were also in this clade. However, these specimens may be misidentified, because a sequence identified as O. livida (AB200955) from the same study ( Matsui et al. 2005b) was placed in the O. chloronota clade, and the O. chloronota sequence (AB200954) from that study ( Matsui et al. 2005b) was placed in the O. graminea clade. There were no other O. livida COI sequences available, except for the two mis-identified specimens (see O. hosii above).
Red List status.
DD (Data Defficient).
Additional Odorrana .
We sequenced one individual ( USNM 587323) of Odorrana from Mandalay, Myanmar. This individual was placed in its own COIBIN and in a 16S clade with specimens identified as Odorrana graminea (KR827967-8) and O. cf. chloronota (DQ650605-11) from Thailand ( Stuart et al. 2006a). Therefore, we tentatively identify this specimen as O. cf. chloronota (sensu Stuart et al. 2006a).
