Brief Summary

Read full entry

Chiromantis nongkhorensis, the Nongkhor pigmy tree frog, Nongkhor Asian Treefrog or Nong Khor Bushfrog, is widely distributed across peninsular Southeast Asia through Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Viet Nam.  This racophorid tree frog inhabits lowland and low montane forests up to 1700 m (5600 ft) above sea level.  Like other members of the genus, they frequently cluster at forest edges and the sides of trails, always near rain pools.  Breeding in aggregations, adults perch in and call from shrubbery and grasses around the pools, and female lay eggs in a foamy mass into the water.  The Nongkhor pigmy frog is moderately large in size, reaching up to 38 mm snout-vent length.  Adult have reddish- or light lavender-brown colored dorsum, a white belly, and various spotting on the back, and smooth skin scattered with tubercles.  Although this frog is susceptible to habitat loss, especially through clear cutting, it is widespread and present in multiple protected areas, so is recognized as of least concern for extinction by the IUCN at this time.
