Tanintharyi Myanmar to southern Thailand.
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).
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.
