Ingerana is a genus of frogs in Dicroglossidae family.[1][2] These frogs are distributed in southeastern Asia, from Nepal, northeastern India, and southwestern China to Indochina, Borneo, and the Philippines. They are sometimes known as the eastern frogs.[1]

Species[edit]

With the placement of Ingerana baluensis being enigmatic[3] and several species having been transferred to Limnonectes in 2013 (Ingerana alpina, Ingerana liui, Ingerana medogensis, Ingerana xizangensis), this genus is left with eight species:[1]

Ingerana rajae (Iskandar, Bickford & Arifin, 2011)[4] is now named Alcalus rajae.
