Through surveys led by FFI in 2012, two new species of frog were discovered in Southern Leyte Province in the Philippines. Both species were from the Platymantis genus.
In 2008, FFI discovered four new species of frog in Cambodia and published the country’s first amphibian guide. The new species of frog were the Samkos bush frog (Chiromantis samkosensis), Cardamom bush frog (Philautus cardamonus), Smith’s frog (Rana faber) and the Aural horned frog (Megophrys auralensis)
One of our Indonesia staff was involved the discovery and conservation status review of the Lungless Frog Barbourula kalimantanensis.
