Notes:
Probably at least 10 males were calling from a small, concrete fish pond. One pair was observed in amplexus. Later a single individual was found in a nearby garden.
The chorus sounded like a bunch of carpenters driving nails into loose bamboo pieces.
Shown a pic later, an older local woman assured me that this species was poisonous to eat.
