The Doi Inthanon rock frog (Amolops archotaphus or Rana archotaphus) is a species of frog in the Ranidae family. It is named after Doi Inthanon mountain and is found in Laos, Thailand, and possibly Vietnam. It is known from Doi Inthanon and in Chiang Rai Province in northern Thailand, and the Annamite Range in Laos. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, and rivers. It is threatened by habitat destruction and degradation, particularly agriculture, development of infrastructure, logging and water pollution.
Until 1997, this species was hidden as a cryptic species within the Odorrana livida complex, and was reassigned to Amolops in 2008.
