Chalcorana eschatia Inger, Stuart & Iskandar, 2009  Peninsular Copper-cheeked Frog Fig. 3E

Description.

An immature female, 35.4 mm SVL, two adult females, 47.3-48.4 mm and five adult males, 30.5-34.6 mm SVL. Both adult females are gravid.

Natural history notes.

Streamside in the primary forest.

General Distribution.

Tanintharyi Myanmar to southern Thailand.

Molecular Data.

Our specimens were placed in a single COIBIN with four specimens from Thailand identified as Hylarana eschatia  . Our specimens were placed in a 16S clade with material from GenBank, with all specimens of C. eschatia  from neighboring Thailand, including type material (e.g. FMNH 268523-30, Inger et al. 2009). Our specimens ranged from 0-1.4% sequence divergence from these individuals in GenBank. Our specimens were placed sister to a clade of COI barcodes for C. eschatia  (KR087702-5), some of the same individuals for which 16S date were available ( Grosjean et al. 2015b).

Comments.

The Malayan populations were formerly included in Hylarana chalconota  , which is now restricted to southern Sumatra, Java, and Bali. Our findings represent new country records for this species.
