Raorchestes jayarami (Biju and Bossuyt, 2009) or "Jayaram's Bush Frog" is a species of frog endemic to the Western Ghats of Tamil Nadu in India. As per the 2013 report, it is listed under IUCN as near threatened, but it is remarked that specifically for the Western Ghats most species are overestimated or underestimated in terms of redlist assignment and more field work needs to be done.
