Description

Pulchrana signata, commonly known as the Striped Stream Frog, is a species of true frog in the family Ranidae.  The habitat of this frog is either along banks of small to medium-sized stream in primary or slightly disturbed forests at elevations from near sea level to about 750 metres. It is found from Thailand to Peninsular Malaysia and throughout Borneo (IUCN SSC Amphibian Specialist Group, 2017).

Some may mistakenly identify the Striped Stream Frog with the Spotted Stream Frog (P. picturata) as both species have similar in habit and form. This frog has either dark brown or black body with light red or orange marking on the head and body's upper surface. The underside is dark grey with small lighter markings. The yellow or orange striped on the edge of the eyelid is continued to the end of the body without interruption where the side meets the back. Some may have a few light spots of the same colour in the centre of the back (Inger & Stuebing, 2005).
