Remarks :
We described Microhyla darreli from from the regions of south Palghat
gap in the Western Ghats state of Kerala, India. This species occurs sympatrically with M. ornata, and the two were also observed calling alternatively at the same site.

Etymology:
The species is named after Dr. Darrel R. Frost, an American herpetologist, in recognition of his contribution “Amphibian Species of the World, an online database” to amphibian research. The species name darreli is used as a noun in the genitive case.

English name: Darrel's Narrow-mouthed Frog
