The Cabalian frog or Leyte slender stream frog (Hylarana albotuberculata) is a species of frog in the family Ranidae. It is endemic to the islands of Leyte, Samar, and Mindanao in the Philippines. It inhabits undisturbed and disturbed streams and rivers in lower montane and lowland forests. It is threatened by habitat loss through deforestation and habitat conversion to agriculture as well as by the pollution due to agricultural run-off.[1]
