Range DescriptionThis species is widespread in West and East Siberia (northwards to 58-72N, southwards to 52-55N), the Russian Far East, northern and central Mongolia and northeastern China (Heilongjiang, Jilin, Liaoning, Neimenggu [Inner Mongolia] and possibly in Shaanxi). The boundary between this species and Rana coreana is unclear. For the purpose of this assessment, we have arbitarily assumed the boundary between the two species to be 40N on the Korean Peninsula, south of which R. coreana occurs. This means that R. amurensis occurs in the northern part of the Democratic Peoples' Republic of Korea, but not in the Republic of Korea. This is mostly a lowland species occurring up to 600m asl.
