Kurixalus chaseni — Chasen’s Frilled Tree Frog
This species was split out from Kurixalus appendiculatus in 2018 by Matsui et al.
At Mulu, Kurt and I had seen quite a few small brownish frogs resting on leaves at night, such as this one and this one and this one. At the time, I falsely assumed most of them were the same species, but I was confident that this one was something different, due to its serrated outline. At least I got that right.
The two I saw were both males. Females have even funnier-looking snouts.
