Abstract

Pelophryne api (Bufonidae), formerly only discovered at Mount Api, Mulu was recently found at the limestone of Bau, Kuching. Morphological observations of the two individuals of P. api discovered matched the original diagnosis description of the holotype species by Dring (1983). The habitats of the recently discovered individuals are closely similar to that of the holotype species as well, remarkably the leaves of low plants at limestone area. The recent collections of P. api leads to suggestion that this species may occur at other limestone areas in Borneo and further field survey at the Bornean limestone areas are needed.
