Termite nest frog

Ramanella variegata

Description:

This species is small and often can be found indoors in homes. The discs on the fingers are triangular. Toes have rudimentary webbing with two metatarsal tubercles. The tibio-tarsal joint reaches shoulder when the hind leg is held along the body.

Habitat:

They breed in water in dark cavities and are often found in termite mounds or under stones. Recorded mainly from peninsular India including the dry zone being found even in Madras and West Bengal. They have been found to be quite tolerant to water salinity.

Notes:

I found this spotting in my house balcony.
