The Common Tree Frog, also called Striped Tree Frog and (see below) Golden Tree Frog, is native to much of southern Southeast Asia (eg Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines) and has been introduced elsewhere (Japan, China). It is similar to the Indian Tree Frog, P. maculatus, of South Asia. (The green "Common Tree Frog" of Europe, usually called European Tree Frog, is a separate genus.)

Colour and intensity of patterns vary and are able to be adjusted a little to camouflage with the background. Snout to vent length is some 6-8cm for females and 4-5cm for males. Eggs are laid in a foam nest above the water so that tadpoles fall into the water on hatching.

The plainer yellow-white "Golden Frog" is a colour variant of the Common Tree Frog. (The Golden Tree Frog endemic to Trinidad, also called the Trinidad Heart-tongued Frog, is, of course, a totally different genus.)
