Despite a lack of rain recently, an amplexus pair of Common tree frogs (Polypedates megacephalus) crossed my path a couple of evenings ago. The only amplexus pair of frogs I have seen so far which indicates to me that these frogs have a longer breeding period than many of the other common amphibians on the island. That being said, after heavy rain at least four-five species of frog and toad can be heard calling all around.

Hi Matt, as far as I am aware, the current thinking is that
Polypedates leucomystax is found south of Prachuap Khiri Khan and P. megacephalus is found in the south.
Sorry, P. Megacephalus in the north.
Thanks Ian, after only a month here I really don’t claim to be an expert, feel free to let me know of any other errors. Cheers, Matt
