General Distribution.

Northeast India to peninsular Myanmar and Thailand.

Molecular Data.

We included two individuals from Mon (MBM- USNM-FS 35753, MBM- USNM-FS 35755). These and our Tanintharyi specimens ranged from 0-2.5% sequence divergence from each other based on COI data and were placed in two COIBINs (Mon and Tanintharyi) and were placed in a 16S clade with other individuals (DQ650612-615) identified as O. livida  from neighboring Thailand and Myanmar ( Stuart et al. 2006a). Two other specimens from GenBank (AB200949-50) identified as O. supranarina  , from the Ryukyu Islands, Japan, were also in this clade. However, these specimens may be misidentified, because a sequence identified as O. livida  (AB200955) from the same study ( Matsui et al. 2005b) was placed in the O. chloronota  clade, and the O. chloronota  sequence (AB200954) from that study ( Matsui et al. 2005b) was placed in the O. graminea  clade. There were no other O. livida  COI sequences available, except for the two mis-identified specimens (see O. hosii  above).

Specimens examined.

USNM 587001-02.

Red List status.

DD (Data Defficient).

Additional Odorrana  .

We sequenced one individual ( USNM 587323) of Odorrana  from Mandalay, Myanmar. This individual was placed in its own COIBIN and in a 16S clade with specimens identified as Odorrana graminea  (KR827967-8) and O. cf. chloronota  (DQ650605-11) from Thailand ( Stuart et al. 2006a). Therefore, we tentatively identify this specimen as O. cf. chloronota  (sensu Stuart et al. 2006a).
