Abavorana luctuosa — Mahogany Frog
Some other names for this species:
Malaysian Frog, Purple Frog
This frog currently occupies the genus Abavorana by itself. It was formerly placed in Hylarana, and in Rana before that.
This very distinctive frog is typically jumpy and difficult to approach. This one was willing to hold its position long enough to allow exactly two photographs, before bounding away.
