Papurana elberti is a species of true frog. It is native to Indonesia and Timor-Leste and found on the islands of Timor and Wetar.[2] Common name Lesser Sundas frog has been coined for it.[2]

Taxonomy[edit]

Based on molecular data, the previously very diverse genus Hylarana was split in numerous genera in 2015. Molecular data from Papurana elberti was not included in the study, and therefore its placement in Papurana is provisional, pending more morphological and molecular data.[2][3]

Conservation[edit]

Papurana elberti has been assessed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), but the assessment is from 2004 and suggest a broader range[1] than more recent sources.[2]
