Abstract We report on a small collection of parachuting frogs from Sumatra and Java. Three new species are described. Rhacophorus achantharrhena is similar to R. dulitensis and R. prominanus and differs from these species by a suite of characters including morphology of the supratympanic fold, digital webbing, coloration, and morphometrics. These three species are unusual in having white visceral and parietal peritonea. Rhacophorus catamitus is a small species similar to R. angulirostris and… 
Mitochondrial DNA reveals a new species of parachuting frog (Rhacophoridae: Rhacophorus) from Sumatra.
TLDR
Using mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), relationships among a group of Rhacophorus species from southern Sumatra are investigated and a female specimen belonging to an unnamed taxon related to R. margaritifer is removed and described as R. bengkuluensis sp.
A new species of the genus Zhangixalus (Amphibia: Rhacophoridae) from Vietnam
ABSTRACT A new rhacophorid species is described from Vietnam on the basis of nine specimens collected in Quan Ba District, Ha Giang Province, northeastern Vietnam. The new species is morphologically
Taxonomic status of the population of Rhacophorus angulirostris Ahl , 1927 (Anura: Rhacophoridae) from Sumatera Barat (West Sumatra) and its description as a new species
TLDR
The taxonomic status of the population of Rhacophorus angulirostris from West Sumatra is reassessed and a distinct species, herein described as new, that appears to be not even closely related to R. angulIROstris is again restricted to northeastern Borneo.
Identification and Description of the Tadpole of the Parachuting Frog Rhacophorus catamitus from Southern Sumatra, Indonesia
TLDR
The larval morphology of the Indonesian parachuting frog Rhacophorus catamitus is described based on several developmental stages, suggesting that this species may breed either continuously or opportunistically throughout the year.
A new species of tree frog genus Rhacophorus from Sumatra, Indonesia Amphibia, Anura).
TLDR
The new species is distinguished from its congeners by a combination of: the presence of black spots on the ventral surfaces of the hand and foot webbing, an absence of vomerine teeth, a venter with a white kite-shaped marking, and a reddish brown dorsum with irregular dark brown blotches and distinct black dots.
Three new species of Pseudocalotes (Squamata: Agamidae) from southern Sumatra, Indonesia.
TLDR
Three new species of Pseudocalotes from the Bukit Barisan Range of southern Sumatra, Indonesia are described and one of them, P. rhammanotus, resembles P. tympanistriga by having bicarinate subdigital lamellae at the base of Toe III.
A new species of Rhacophorus (Anura: Rhacophoridae) from Gunung Gading, Sarawak
TLDR
A new species of rhacophorid of the genus Rhacophorus is described from Gunung Gading National Park, Sarawak, western Borneo and is compared with congeners from Bornea and other parts of southeast Asia.
Molecular phylogeny of treefrogs in the Rhacophorus dugritei species complex (Anura: Rhacophoridae), with descriptions of two new species
TLDR
The phylogeny validates the previously contested species R. puerensis, which is distributed northwards from northern Vietnam to north-western Yunnan, China, and Rhacophorus hui is also considered to be a valid species, the range of which is restricted to Zhaojue County, Sichuan, China.
Note on a collection of Amphibians and Reptiles from Western Sumatra (Indonesia), with the description of a new species of the genus Bufo
TLDR
This collection, although limited in size, is important and 3 amphibian and 10 reptile species represent new provincial records and a preliminary biogeographical hypothesis of the herpetofauna of Sumatra is provided.
A New Species of Rhacophorus from Eastern Thailand (Anura: Rhacophoridae)
TLDR
A new tree frog of the genus Rhacophorus is described on the basis of specimens collected from Kalasin and Roi Et Provinces, eastern Thailand, where habitats suitable for anurans are limited.

Preliminary work reveals significant differences in the morphology of the ilio-sacral articulation among extant frogs and suggests that differences in types of articulation are correlated with different directional movements at the joint, with specific locomotor modes, and wim phylogenetic groupings.
