Description

The Striped Stream Frog is a species of frog in the family Ranidae. It lives 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 throughout Borneo and apparently occur in Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula. The Striped Stream Frog has similar in habit and form with the Spotted Stream Frog (Pulchrana picturata). This frog species generally has dark brown or black body with lighter red or orange marking on the upper surface of head and body. Its underside is dark grey with small lighter markings. The striped on the edge of the eyelid is continued to the end of the body without interruption where the side meets the back. There may be a few light spots of the same colour in the centre of the back (Inger & Stuebing, 2005).
