Play call

A handsome species, the Spotted Stream Frog can be heard calling from low vegetation or tree roots alongside streams flowing through areas of primary or altered secondary forest. Its call is generally a rapid tri-syllabic chirp.

Easily identified by the orange-brown stripes which extend from snout to vent, and by the yellowish or orange spots. In some populations, for example in Borneo, the spots and stripes are green. In other populations the spots are larger and coalesced, creating a mottled pattern.

The species ranges from southern Thailand and Peninsular Malaysia to Borneo and Sumatra. It is absent from Singapore.
