(In Thai: ปาดเขียวคิโอ)
Rhacophorus kio is species of frog in the Rhacophoridae family. First described from Laos, this species is also known from southern China (Yunnan and Guangxi provinces), northern Thailand, eastern India, Vietnam, and Cambodia. It quite possibly occurs in Myanmar too. Prior to the description of this species in 2006, it was confused with Rhacophorus reinwardtii. The common name black-webbed treefrog can refer to either species.
Rhacophorus kio is an arboreal species that has been recorded from primary and secondary evergreen rainforests with a closed canopy, generally at low elevations. IUCN has classified it as a vulnerable species because of its fragmented distribution and threats from habitat loss.
