It has been found in Borneo mostly in swamp forests near the coast which is the adults live on the forest floor, but also climbs up into low vegetation. The distribution of P. baramica is in lowland coastal forests of Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore (Stuebing et al., 2017).

The Brown Marsh Frog has wide head, large eyes and visible eardrum. It also has webbed toes that are less than half with long fingers and the enlarged tips.

The sides of its body are yellowish, marked with irregular dark brown spots meanwhile, the lower surfaces are whitish, with irregular brown or black. Its appearance is similar to the Rough-sided Frog (P. glandulosa), but the former is smaller in size (Inger & Stuebing, 2005).
