Play call

The Hill Forest Frog Limnonectes hascheanus occurs in primary and mature secondary forest, in both lowland areas and higher elevations (up to at least 1300 metres). It has been documented from shallow, rocky, forest streams and along shaded forest trails.

The most distinctive feature of this species is its call, which is crow-like in tone and can be heard during daytime hours - it is typically heard calling from beneath damp leaf-litter.

This species has been documented in parts of Burma (Myanmar), southern Thailand and northern and central parts of Peninsular Malaysia (including the islands of Langkawi, Penang and Tioman). It appears to be absent from extreme southern parts of Peninsular Malaysia, and has not been recorded from Singapore.
