The Sri Lankan painted frog is native to Sri Lanka but also to India, Bangladesh and Nepal. It is a fossorial species, spending the day buried in the leaf litter, in loose soil or under fallen logs, but can also climb into the branches of trees. The habitats it prefers include dry forests, coconut and rubber plantations, wetlands, rice fields and disturbed areas close to dwellings.
