Justification
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.

Kuhl's creek frog


The Kuhl's creek frog or large-headed frog (Limnonectes kuhlii) is a species of frog in the Ranidae family. The nominal species has a broad distribution in Southeast Asia, but this almost certainly represents more than one species;[1][2] Limnonectes fujianensis of southeastern China and Taiwan has already been separated as an independent species. The type locality of L. kuhlii is Java, and it is the only area where the species occurs with certainty.[2]
