(In Thai: เขียดหลังไพล)
Pelophylax lateralis is a species of frog in the Ranidae family. It is found in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. It is commonly known as Kokarit frog, yellow frog or (ambiguously) wood frog.
Placed in Rana when this was still loosely circumscribed, it was since assigned to the "water frog" genus Pelophylax. However, it is not clear whether this is the most appropriate treatment, and the Kokarit Frog might rather belong in Hylarana. The supposed species Rana nigrolineata was recently determined to be a junior synonym of "P." lateralis.
Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical dry lowland grassland, moist shrubland, plantations, swamps, freshwater marshes, intermittent freshwater marshes, ponds, and seasonally flooded or irrigated agricultural land. It is not considered threatened by the IUCN.
