It was dark, very dark when I spotted this frog. I had to track it by listening to it's croak and using flash in my photography to reveal it. I tried to do a quick search on it's ID in the Internet but when I typed "Sabah frogs", many results on political issues turned up instead. Prof. Dr. Alexander Haas has suggested Polypedates macrotis. >>>Map accuracy : 5m diameter.
