Occidozyga martensii (Peters, 1867) 

Description.

Adult females (n = 7) 26.4-28.4 mm SVL, adult males (n = 7) 19.0-24.3 mm SVL. Dorsal skin lightly rugose; dorsum dusky brown and few individuals with a faint pattern of mid-dorsal dark stripe bordered by lighter parasagittal stripe on each side; posterior thigh with faint and narrow dark horizontal stripe; venter immaculate from chest to pubis, chin and throat dark in males, dusky to immaculate in females.

Natural history notes.

Found in flooded fields and other human-modified habitats.

General Distribution.

Tanintharyi to northern West Malaysia, Thailand to southern China.

Molecular Data.

The Tanintharyi specimens were nearly identical to each other (<1% sequence divergence COI and 16S) and formed a 16S clade with specimens in GenBank identified as O. martensii  (AB530610 and KP318725) from Thailand. Other sequences in GenBank identified as O. martensii  from Vietnam (AF285214, DQ283357) and Yunnan China (DQ458255-56) form a separate clade sister to ours, indicating this may represent a species complex.
