TIMOR-LESTE 2012

Victor Valley College Tropical Research Initiative
Herpetofauna of Timor-Leste
Phase VII

Afaloicoi, Baucau District

Afaloicai is a short distance south of Ossohuna. One evening's search turned up three species of amphibians: Rice-paddy frogs (Fejervarya sp.), some Striped treefrogs (Polypedates cf. leucomystax), and a juvenile Timor river frog (Limnoectes timorensis) - our first specimen of this species from a location other than the Meleotegi River - and some large tadpoles of what appear to be Rice-paddy frogs.
