Variable bush frog - Raorchestes akroparallagi
One of beautiful frog species from the western ghats. Like most bush frogs there are tiny and very hard to find in spite of their high pitch croaking sound. The males wait for the rains, as it rains the male start calling out loud for the females.
That particular night would be a orchestra of bush frogs. I have heard calls of 1-2 males even in the morning after light showers.
''Raorchestes akroparallagi'' is a species of frog in the Rhacophoridae family.
It is endemic to the Western Ghats, India, where it is known from the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Before its description in 2009, it was confused with ''Raorchestes femoralis'' and ''Raorchestes glandulosus''.
