Nanorana arnoldi (common name: Arnold's paa frog) is a species of frog in the Dicroglossidae family. It is found in southwestern China (Tibet, Yunnan), northern Myanmar, eastern Nepal, and adjacent northeastern India.[2] Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, rivers, and freshwater springs. It is primarily threatened by collection for consumption, but also by habitat loss.[1]
