Description

Platymantis corrugatus (rough-backed forest frog) is a species belonging to Ceratobatrachidae family. This species is known because of its size and longitudinal ridges on its back. It is endemic to some major islands in the Philippines and it inhabits both primary and secondary forests. The major threat to this species is habitat loss due to deforestation. Prevention to further logging activities is the most important conservation measure.

Description

Tiny frog that jumped across my path and hid in leaf litter.

It could be several Platymantis species that I have since researched but the colouration didn't match any photos that I found online. Its size and shape also look very similar to a Leptolalax species that I am more familiar with.

Thanks to Arvin Diesmos of Philippine herpwatch.org who identified it as P. corrugatus.
