Rhacophorus bipunctatus — Twin-spotted Flying Frog
Also known as:
Double-spotted Red-webbed Treefrog, Twin-spotted Treefrog, Himalaya Flying Frog
Molecular studies in 2018 suggest that the populations of this species in peninsular Malaysia might be part of Rhacophorus rhodopus instead, but it seems like more studies will be needed to untangle these relationships.
I had never seen a flying frog before this trip. This was my fourth species, in three days. (A few days later I saw my fifth and final of this trip.)
Unlike their more famous cousins, Twin-spotted Flying Frogs live way up in the highlands.
