This tiny, terrestrial
frog species lives near small puddles and ponds in rural areas and secondary
forest. Its colour pattern is quite distinctive from other species of
Narrow-mouthed Frog. It can be hard to find, on account of its small size
and its habit of lying concealed in the grass or under leaf litter. Its call
is a series of rapidly repeated clicking sounds.
The species ranges from
southern China through Thailand to West Malaysia and Sumatra. In Singapore
it is quite common in abandoned rural land, and parks and gardens.
