Ixalus asper Boulenger, 1886
Theloderma asperum is a frog in the family Rhacophoridae. It is also known as the pied warty frog, hill garden bug-eyed frog, or somewhat informally, bird poop frog. The frog can be found in the northeastern India, Burma, China (Tibet, possibly more widely), Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam as well as Sumatra in Indonesia. However, because of confusion with Theloderma albopunctatus and Theloderma baibengensis, it is known with certainty from its type locality in Peninsular Malaysia.
It is a small frog, reaching no more than 3 centimeters long. The main color of the frog is red-brown. The sides of the frog are mud-white with red spots. The frog has dark red eyes.
Theloderma asperum is a tree bark mimic that breeds in tree holes.
