Montane litter frog Leptobrachium

Montane litter frog

Leptobrachium montanum is almost impossible to distinguish from L. gunungense, both occur on Mt Kinabalu. They differ slightly in their altitudinal distribution and their vocalisation. Leptobrachium gunungense was only described by science in 1996 and probably remained undetected due to its similarity to L. montanum.

Location: Gunung Kinabalu national park; Sabah. Status: Least Concern. Dimensions: (858x609)
