Family : DICROGLOSSIDAE
Species : Limnonectes deinodon
Size (snout to vent) : Female 4.6 cm, Male 4.7 cm

The Corrugated Frog is a small, unassuming species which inhabits shallow puddles and clear streams within primary rainforest and freshwater swamp forest. It occurs from the lowlands to at least 1500 metres above sea level.

The body is stout, the hind legs thick and muscular, the snout rounded and the eyes medium in size. The dorsal surface is orange-brown or medium brown with darker mottling, and the underside is pale. Its skin is distinctly corrugated, as can be seen in Figure 4.

The Corrugated Frog ranges widely from India and Burma through Thailand and Peninsular Malaysia. It also occurs in Borneo, but is absent in Singapore.
