Play call

The informally named 'Golden-eared Rough-sided Frog'  inhabits lowland primary and disturbed secondary forest, and is generally found close to forest streams and swamps. It is largely terrestrial, however the author has found this frog perched on low tree branches.

The dorsal surface is reddish-brown to dark brown, the flanks yellowish or white, and the belly white. Skin texture is coarse. The most easily distinguishable feature is the large tympanum (ear drum) in the centre of which is an orange or yellow disc.

The species ranges from Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore to the Indonesian islands of Java, Sumatra and Borneo. Populations of this species in Singapore were previously assigned as R. glandulosa, however this error has been corrected in Singapore species lists since 2004.
