(In Thai: ปาดตะปุ่มจันทบุรี)

Theloderma stellatum is a species of frog in the Rhacophoridae family.

It is found in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, and plantations.

It is threatened by habitat loss. This species deposits eggs in rain water collected in small tree holes; the tadpoles feed on the organic matter aggregated in a tannin-rich rain water. Notches aiming resin collection increase carrying capacity of the frogs providing additional breeding sites.
