Polypedates feae (Boulenger, 1893)

Rhacophorus feae is a species of frog in the family Rhacophoridae. It is found in southwestern Yunnan (China), northern Laos, northern and central highlands of Vietnam, northern Thailand, and Myanmar.[1][2] The specific name feae honors Leonardo Fea, an Italian explorer, zoologist, and naturalist.[3] Its natural habitats are closed-canopy evergreen rainforests, but it can adapt to human presence. Breeding takes place in streams, ponds, and paddy fields as well as holes in trees; it seems to require large trees. It is threatened by habitat loss and collecting for consumption, at least in the past.[1]
