Duttaphrynus scaber
family: Bufonidae
Taxonomic Notes: Duttaphrynus atukoralei is considered a junior synonym of D. scaber since it is not genetically distinguishable as a separate species; further they are conspecifics and the population in the Lowland Wet Zone is likely a distinct cryptic species related to Duttaphrynus scaber. See Jayawardena, B., G. Senevirathne, N. Wijayathilaka, K. D. B. Ukuwela, K. Manamendra-Arachchi, and M. Meegaskumbura. 2017.
