status

 

Ingerophrynus parvus (Boulenger, 1887) 

Description.

Adult male 37.7 mm and adult female, 45.2 mm SVL.

Natural history notes.

Both individuals were found in the leaf-litter of forest sites 1-2, and also observed in the slash & burnt area.

General Distribution.

Southern Myanmar and southwestern Thailand through Malay Peninsula into Greater Sunda Islands.

Molecular Data.

Our specimens are genetically similar to one another (99.6% identical) and, based on 16S data are placed in a clade with other I. parvus  , though showing substantial genetic differences (91-94% identical) from GenBank material (AB746455 and AB530649-51). GenBank specimens are from Malaysia, suggesting either this may represent a species complex, or this represents a single species that shows high genetic diversity, possibly attributed to a low dispersal rate of a leaf-litter species.

Specimens examined.
