Species : Fejervarya limnocharis
Size (snout to vent) :
Female 6 cm, Male 5 cm

A common nocturnal frog of rice paddies, forest clearings, parks and gardens. In the field it can be identified by the long toes on its hind legs, the intermittent raised skin ridges on its ventral surface, its white belly and its relatively small size. A vertebral stripe may or may not be present.

It ranges from India and Sri Lanka, through Thailand and southern China to Japan and Taiwan, and down through Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore and the major Indonesian islands.
