Twin-spotted Flying Frog
   
   

Fig 1


 

Family : RHACOPHORIDAE
Species : Rhacophorus bipunctatus
Size (snout to vent) :
Female 6.5 cm,  Male 3.7 cm

The twin-spotted Flying Frog is one of the smaller Rhacophorus species. It mainly inhabits primary forests above 1000 metres elevation, and may be encountered in the vicinity of houses.

Its dorsal surface is light brown patterned with tiny black spots, or greenish with pale stripes. The juvenile shown here is  medium orange-brown with numerous small dark spots. The upper arms are yellow-gold, and the fingers and toes yellow-gold to reddish.

As with all flying frogs, the finger and toes are extensively webbed which, when extended, allow the frog to glide effectively from tree to tree.

The species ranges from eastern India through Burma and Thailand to Indochina, as well as down through Peninsular Malaysia.
