Grass Frog (Fejervarya limnocharis)
This medium-sized frog was sitting on the bank of a pond that was teeming with Floating Spotted Frogs and Schlegel’s Java Frogs, as well as several toads and probably several species I mixed. Frogs galore!

Fejervarya limnocharis was formerly named Limnonectes limnocharis, and Rana limnocharis before that.

The identification of this frog is not certain. I originally identified it, with help from Frank Bambang Yuwono as Rana cancrivora (a.k.a. Limnonectes cancrivorus, Fejervarya cancrivora), but unlike F. limnocharis, that species is not listed as living on Bali by either Iskander or FrogWeb. Also, the closest photo match I’ve found is is of F. limnocharis, though the two species are very similar in appearance. My memory of this individual is that it was a fairly large frog, perhaps 3-4 inches long, which is larger than most descriptions of F. limnocharis, but well within the size range of F. cancrivora. If you know more, please do tell.
