scientific name

Ingerana tenasserimensis (Sclater, 1892)
status

 

Ingerana tenasserimensis (Sclater, 1892) 

Description.

Adult females (n =3) 17.6-19.7 mm SVL.

Natural history notes.

These frogs were found along the edges of streams in areas of low falls caused by flat rocky outcrops. All were gravid with two or three unpigmented ova.

General Distribution.

Eastern Myanmar and adjacent Thailand to northern West Malaysia.

Molecular Data.

We included three individuals from Mon State ( USNM 587300, USNM 587302, and MBM USNM-FS 35684). These and our specimens were placed in two separate COI BINS (ADG3231 and ADG3230) that were 7.04% sequence divergence, and they all formed a 16S clade with another individual in GenBank from near Dawei (KF991266; CAS 246787) also identified as Ingerana tenasserimensis  .

Comments.

Two other specimens in GenBank are placed sister to our clade based on 16S, one (KR827831) identified as I.  tenasserimensis from Thailand ( Grosjean et al. 2015b) and another (KU589219) from India identified as "I. sp. SB2016". These two individuals each probably represent a different species. The type locality for this species is Tenasserim, southern Myanmar. Therefore, if this species is split into multiple species, our specimens likely represent true I. tenasserimensis  . Another sequence in GenBank (AY322302) is identical to another (DQ283235) identified as I. borealis  .

Specimens examined.

MBM- USNM-FS 35684, USNM 587300, USNM 587302, USNM 587306, USNM 586921-923.
