After the National Seminar on Climate Change and Biodiversity at CBCNR, CUO in Koraput, Odisha from 23.11.2013 to 24.11.2013 my research group visited the famous Gupteswar temple on 25.11.2013. We took a trail to the Sitakund (a wetland) from 1.00 pm to 2.30 pm. We observed a Common Skittering frog (Euphlyctis cyanophlyctis) in the surface of that Wetland. Initially it was unidentified. Later on it was identified by Sarmistha Dey (https://www.researchgate.net/post/Please_help_me_to_identify_this_species2).
