It is found in Bangladesh east through Myanmar and non-peninsular Thailand to Cambodia, northern Vietnam and Laos; it is also reported from Hulu Perak in Peninsular Malaysia. This species was first described by George Albert Boulenger based on seven specimens collected by Leonardo Fea from Karen Hills, Burma.

Description

Raorchestes parvulus are small frogs. Males measure about 23 mm (0.91 in) in snout-vent length and have a large vocal sack. They have a rounded snout and hidden tympanum. Their feet have short fingers/toes and are equipped with adhesive discs; fingers are free from webbing but toes are slightly webbed at their base.

Habitat

This widespread frog is more easily heard than seen. It inhabits primarily open habitats, including forest edges, open scrub forests, and reed patches.
