Korat rice frog
Binomial name: Fejervarya triora, Tanya Chan-Ard & Robert Frederick Inger, 2006
Fejervarya triora is a species of frog belonging to the family Dicroglossidae. Its type locality is in Phu Chong-Na Yoi National Park, Ubon Ratchathani Province in the far east of Thailand. It is also known from the Mukdahan Province, and so far only known from eastern Thailand, although it is not unlikely that it occurs in adjacent Laos too. It has been found in a range of forested habitats.
This is a robustly built frog, females having a body length of up to 60 mm in snout–vent length (SVL). The only known male measures 45 mm SVL. The warty upperparts are olive brown with green blotches, the underparts are greyish white. There is an orange spot on the lower half of the tympanum and yellow and black patterning on the legs. The iris is bronze-coloured. When compared to other Fejervarya species found in the region, F. triora can be distinguished from F. raja by its much smaller size and from both F. cancrivora and F. limnocharis by its broader head and the lack of distinct ridges along the back.
The tadpole is mostly dark brown with a yellow line on the lower part of the tail and the front two thirds of the ventral fin pale.
