Philautus zimmeri (Ahl, 1927)

Pseudophilautus zimmeri is an extinct species of frog in the Rhacophoridae family. It was endemic to Sri Lanka, where it was recorded from the vicinity of Galle. It was a small frog—the holotype measures 31.6 mm from snout to vent—which resembled Pseudophilautus fulvus. P. zimmeri is assumed to have become extinct due to habitat loss caused by urbanization.
