Abstract

The Western Ghats have a high level of anuran endemism. Although there has been an extensive focus on their taxonomy, the ecology of most species are poorly known. In this note we describe the reproductive life-history traits and breeding behavior of four species of endemic bush frogs, Pseudophilautus wynaadensis, Raorchestes akroparallagi, Raorchestes glandulosus, and Raorchestes ponmudi (Amphibia: Anura: Rachophoridae) from Wayanad region of Western Ghats.
