Family : DICROGLOSSIDAE
Species : Limnonectes paramacrodon
Size (snout to vent) :  Female 7.3 cm, Male 6.6 cm

The Masked Swamp Frog is a species of acidic, freshwater swamp forests - in such habitat the species is difficult to locate.

A medium-sized frog, L. paramacrodon is distinguished by the black mask running through the eye, and the triangular shape of the black marking covering the tympanum (ear drum) and adjacent skin.

The dorsal surface is brown, and coarsely textured. The rear area of the flank and thigh is often yellowish.

The species ranges from Southern Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore to Borneo (including Bangka) and Sumatra.
