    Ansonia jeetsukumarani: Brief Summary ( Dutch; Flemish )
    provided by wikipedia NL

    Ansonia jeetsukumarani is een kikker die behoort tot de familie van de padden (Bufonidae). De soort werd voor het eerst wetenschappelijk beschreven door Perry L. Wood Jr., L. Lee Grismer, Norhayati Ahmad en Juliana Senawi in 2008.

    De soort is endemisch in Maleisië, meer bepaald in het Titiwangsa-gebergte op het schiereiland Malakka. Ze leeft in de gesloten wouden op de heuvels (boven 1000 m hoogte), in en nabij kleine riviertjes. Ze broedt waarschijnlijk in de rivieren. A. jeetsukumarani is wellicht een zeldzame soort, maar er is nog niet veel bekend over de verspreiding ervan. Op de Rode Lijst van de IUCN heeft ze daarom de status DD (data deficient, onzeker) gekregen.

    De naam jeetsukumarani is een eerbetoon aan Jeet Sukumaran, een evolutionair bioloog met verschillende publicaties over de herpetofauna van het schiereiland.

Comprehensive Description

Distribution

    Distribution and Habitat
    provided by AmphibiaWeb text

    Populations of Ansonia jeetsukumarani can be found at Fraser's Hill, Pahang, and Sungai Pergau, Kelantan, in Peninsular Malaysia. Individuals were collected at elevations ranging from 1059 - 1125 m. Ansonia jeetsukumarani was found generally on leaves and rocks about 0.5 - 1.5 m above the forest floor and in close proximity to streams (Wood et al. 2008).

Threats

    Life History, Abundance, Activity, and Special Behaviors
    provided by AmphibiaWeb text

    Because of the recent discovery of this species, it is difficult to tell if the species is in decline. However major threats could include habitat fragmentation and global warming (Wood 2009).
