English name: Inthanon Stream Toad
Scientific name: Ansonia inthanon
Thai name: Kang-kok huai inthanon

Special Note: I encountered this Inthanon Stream Toad on four different occasions in the same location, but it was tucked away in deep recesses behind rock and water in a mountain stream which made photographs quite difficult.

Until now, the Inthanon Stream Toad was only known from two locations: Doi Inthanon in Chiang Mai Province and Thongphaphum in Kanchanaburi Province. However, I found this individual on Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai Province, thereby representing only the third locality known for the species.

I want to acknowledge Stephen Mahoney for helping me to identify the frog.
