Leptobrachium bompu

Total Photos: 0

One of the distinguishing characters of this species is its entirely greyish-blue eye colour. Its body is roundish and its head is wider than long. It lacks the spines on upper lip in adult males that are often present in Leptobrachium subgenus Vibrissaphora. Its back and head are greyish-brown getting lighter on flanks; sides of head and body have brownish shine. Males could be heard calling after sunset and were found under leaf litter by the stream. The call was a loud croaking "kek-kek-kek-kek". The frogs were docile, found sitting in a crouched position and easily picked up. The type locality was a slow-flowing perennial stream in a wet subtropical/temperate hill forest.
