Puddle Frogs


Currently there are twelve recognized species of Occidozyga in Asia (ASW). A common character (synapomorphy) seems to be the predatory larvae that lack oral keratodonts and possess a horse-shoe like lower lip. 

All species are small to medium sized frogs. Their distribution ranges over Southern China, Thailand, Malaya, Vietnam, Philippines, Greater and Lesser Sunda Islands including Flores.
