Frilled Treefrog

Rhacophorus

Rhacophorus is a genus of frogs in the moss frog family (Rhacophoridae) which together with the related Hylidae makes up the true tree frogs. They live in India, Japan and Southeast Asia. It is closely related to Polypedates, and several species of that genus were formerly placed in Rhacophorus.

These frogs have long toes with strong webbing between them, enabling the animals to slow their fall to a glide. They are therefore among the anurans commonly known as "flying frogs".

Selected species

This list is not necessarily complete as new species are still being discovered. Since the end of 1999 for example, more than a dozen new species have been described.
