[Herpetology • 2017] Theloderma pyaukkya • A New Cryptic Species of the Theloderma asperum Complex (Anura: Rhacophoridae) from Myanmar


Theloderma pyaukkya Dever, 2017


Abstract
I describe a new species of Theloderma from two regions in Myanmar (Chin State in western Myanmar and Kachin State in northern Myanmar). Highly similar in appearance and size to Theloderma albopunctatum and Theloderma asperum, the new species differs by the presence of small, bilateral vocal sac openings absent in T. albopunctatum and T. asperum. Molecular phylogenetic analysis from two mitochondrial and four nuclear gene fragments infers that individuals are members of a unique genetic lineage within the T. asperum Complex.

Theloderma pyaukkya sp. nov. 
Burmese Camouflaged Tree Frog

Etymology.— Specific epithet pyaukkya (pronounced pee-ew-cha) is Burmese for camouflaged, which reflects the frog’s cryptic coloration.
