Francis Floe Unnamed spotting

Wait I always thought theyre all cane toads, I didn't know we had Native toads, they look so similar to Bufo marinus, I learnt you can distinguish the native toads through the distinct two crests on their head.

Thanks John B. we always start off from somewhere, I don't even know how to focus my camera that time so my spotting was blurry, hope I come across the same species of bug and take a better photo.

Wow! Thank you for taking the time to research this out. I am very much interested in regional languages too. We also use the word kalamansi but suha is just used more often for it. Well, I'm guessing that Suha is a word to describe sour citrus fruits or their was just a confusion with the names and people stuck with it.

For some reason, Pomelos are called Cabugao here and instead, the word Suha is referred to Calamansi.

Thanks a lot John B! 🙂 I was actually kinda stuck trying to identify this bug, and my awful camera quality pics didn't help at all so this was a lot of help! Now I was looking into the name "variegatum" and it means variegated which perfectly describes the bug's irregular pattern. And variegated could also translate that the bug's pattern is variable from specimen to specimen which kinda explains why some photos show the same species but they have no consistent patterning from one another.
