Rana glandulosa Boulenger, 1882

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Assessor(s): Peter Paul van Dijk, Djoko Iskandar, Robert Inger
Reviewer(s): Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson and Neil Cox)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, its tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: This species occurs in Peninsular Thailand from Chumphon southwards throughout much of Peninsular Malaysia and the islands of Penang and Pulau Tiga. It is not reported from Singapore. It is also present in swampy areas of Sumatra, Natuna Besar (both Indonesia) and Borneo. It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest, especially in areas between known sites. It is found from lowlands up to 700m asl.
Brunei Darussalam; Indonesia; Malaysia; Thailand

Population [top]

Population: It is generally not uncommon where it occurs, but it is well camouflaged and its presence is best confirmed by its distinctive call.
Population Trend: Decreasing

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology: It is known mainly from near pools, swamps, small lakes and slow-flowing rivers enclosed by rainforest, mature rubber plantations and swampy areas. It has also been recorded from a cave habitat (Boulenger, 1912). Breeding takes place in still waters.
Systems: Terrestrial; Freshwater

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): In mainland Southeast Asia there are no specific threats recorded for the species. The loss of swamplands is a concern (caused by logging, plantations or wetland drainage) for some populations.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: It is present in protected areas throughout much of its range. Effective preservation of suitable forest habitat is the main conservation measure needed for this species.
