The genus Raorchestes belongs to the Rhacophoridae family. A total of 52 species were reported from India, nine of which were described in 2014. This frog genus is under grave threats, especially due to the habitat degradation caused by the cultivation of eucalyptus, coffee and tea plantations, deforestation, agricultural practices and unplanned tourism.
