Two individuals found resting on leaves near a fast flowing stream at night.
Found in rain forest torrent after heavy rain. Two males found calling from small ferns.
Several individuals observed inside the cave system, mostly in the parts nearer to the entrance of every cave.
Note: Not sure about ID, please help!
In the late afternoon while it was getting dark found a subadult (1,1cm) close to a small stream (350 meters in elevation).
These were quite common and calling noisily from vegetation next to, or overhanging, a forest stream within Kinabalu National Park, at approximately 1585m above sea level.
I found this toad at high elevation (~3000m above sea level) on Mount Kinabalu. It is a moderate sized toad (between 30 and 40mm) that was walking across the trail. Going through my field guides, it appears to be Pelophryne misera (at least visually), but it does not fit as it is far larger than P. misera and it does not have webbing on its hands which is a characteristic of Pelophryne. I've gone through the Frogsofborneo.org options, and have not had success there either. Consequently, I have no idea what the species is.
One individual found perched on a twing in a stream, the other perched on a road sign.
One individual found vocalising on a boulder in a fast flowing stream.
One male observed calling from a fern at the edge of a fast flowing stream.
Ansonia (Stream Toads) is a small genus of true toads found in South India; northern Thailand; Malay Peninsula; Tioman Island; Borneo and Mindanao (Philippines). These are small forest species which spawn in streams and have torrent-adapted tadpoles.
