The common puddle frog, puddle frog, or yellow bellied puddle frog (Occidozyga laevis) is a species of frog in the Dicroglossidae family. It has often been confused with Occidozyga sumatrana (which until 1998 was considered to be a junior synonym O. laevis[2]), and records of this species outside the Philippines likely represent that species.[3] Its natural habitats are tropical moist lowland forests, rivers, intermittent rivers, swamps, intermittent freshwater marshes, coastal freshwater lagoons, arable land, pastureland, rural gardens, urban areas, water storage areas, ponds, aquaculture ponds, irrigated land, seasonally flooded agricultural land, and introduced vegetation.[1]
