Huia absita Stuart & Chan-ard, 2005

Odorrana absita is a species of frog in the Ranidae family that is found in Laos and Vietnam. It was originally described in genus Huia.[3]

Its natural habitats are tropical moist montane forests and rivers. Its status is insufficiently known.[1] This species is known from wet, hilly, evergreen forest. Individuals have been found both near small, rocky, streams and in forest away from permanent water bodies. It was usually found perching at up to 1m above the ground, on small tree branches or herbaceous vegetation. This species is presumed to breed by larval development.[1]
