Odorrana hosii (Boulenger, 1891)  Green Odor Frog Fig. 3D

Description.

A total of 17 individuals were collected in the Tanintharyi. Two adult females, 78.3, 87.8 mm SVL, adult males (n = 13) 52.5-60.4 mm SVL (measurements for adults only). All individuals share dark lores, a white upper lip with white stripe extending to above axilla, and an immaculate (nearly white) venter from chin to pubic area.

Natural history notes.

The unpigmented follicles and enlarging oviducts in females and the modest ductus deferens and no external visible vocal sacs of males suggest that breeding had not yet begun in this population. All were found on branches over and adjacent to forest streams.

General distribution.

Peninsular Myanmar, Thailand, West Malaysia to Sumatra and Borneo.

Molecular data.

Our specimens ranged from 0-0.5% sequence divergence from each other based on COI data and were placed in one BIN. These were also placed in a 16S clade identical to other individuals (e.g. DQ650595-604) identified as O. hosii  from neighboring Thailand ( Stuart et al. 2006a). This clade also contained two individuals identified as O. livida  (KR827970-1) from Thailand ( Grosjean et al. 2015b), which are presumably misidentified. Our specimens were placed sister to the same two specimens identified as O. livida  (KR087841-2) in the 16S tree ( Grosjean et al. 2015b), which are misidentified. Two other clades of O. hosii  from GenBank were recovered in the 16S tree, sister to each other, and that clade is sister to the one containing our specimens.
