Abstract: Mating calls of three anuran species from Borneo, Rana glandulosa, R. signata and Polypedates leucomystax were analysed. The audiospectrograms obtained were compared with previously published descriptions of the calls of these species in different geographic areas. The comparisons revealed a high level of heterogeneity of the calls within the range of R. signata and P. leucomystax. The possible taxonomic implications of these findings are also discussed. The first description of the mating call of R. glandulosa is presented.
