Abstract

Frogs of the genus Indirana belong to the endemic family Ranixalidae and are found exclusively in the Western Ghats biodiversity hotspot. Since taxonomy, biology and distribution of these frogs are still poorly understood, we conducted a comprehensive literature review of what is known on the taxonomy, morphology, life history characteris - tics and breeding biology of these species. Furthermore, we collected information on the geographical locations mentioned in the literature, and combined this with information from our own field surveys in order to generate detailed distribution maps for each spe - cies. Apart from serving as a useful resource for future research and conservation efforts, this review also highlights the areas where future research efforts should be focussed.
