''Polypedates maculatus'', the Himalayan tree frog or Chunam tree frog, is a common species of tree frog found in South Asia. It was described by John Edward Gray in 1830.

The northwestern subspecies ''P. m. himalayensis'' was formerly considered a separate species. ''Polypedates leucomystax'', a very similar species, was formerly included in ''P. maculatus''.
