Family : RANIDAE
Species : Odorrana hosii
Size (snout to vent) :
Female 10 cm,  Male 7 cm

A large, distinctive frog to be found near fast-flowing streams, cascades and waterfalls up to 1500 metres elevation. The examples shown here were found resting on fallen trees and moss-covered boulders next to a clear forest stream.

The large size, typically Ranid body shape and the green and brown patterning serve to distinguish this species from the Common Greenback Hylarana erythraea

The species ranges from southern Thailand and Peninsular Malaysia (including Penang and Tioman islands), to Borneo, Sumatra and Java.
