A treefrog (Boophis doulioti) floats in a pond in Anjajavy, Madagascar A small manmade pond on the grounds of Anjajavy Lodge was home to many of these fairly generic-looking treefrogs. To the eye, they are indistinguishable from Boophis tephraeomystax, but their ranges do not overlap. Boophis doulioti,Fall,Frog,Geotagged,Madagascar

Naming

Original name: Rhacophorus doulioti
This species was removed from the synonymy of Boophis tephraeomystax by Vences and Glaw (2002), where it had been placed by Guibé (1978) and Blommers-Schlösser (1979).

Distribution

Occurs mostly in western Madagascar. Ampijoroa, Andafiabe, Ankarafantsika, Antranopasasy, Isalo, Kirindy, Morondava, Nahampoana, Petriky, Tolagnaro, Toliara, Tranomaro, Tsingy de Bemaraha. Occurs from sea level to 800m asl (Glaw et Vences 2008).

Status

Listed as Least Concern in view of its relatively wide distribution, tolerance of a broad range of habitats, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.

Habitat

Habitat is similar to that of B. tephraeomystax: open areas, rarely in clearings in rainforest, mostly in secondary vegetation, often in banana or Typhonodorum plants and in villages. Breeds in all sorts of non-flowing waters from larger ponds and rice fields to small puddles and ditches.
