After my TOEFL examination, I went to Gutian Mountain which was located in Zhejiang Province, China. And this is my first time to post my field work. If I made a mistake, please let me know. Thank you.

On the first night, I found some frogs and a snake around my hotel.

I am not sure they are Amolops ricketti or Amolops wuyiensis, because both of them are very common in this area. And I can hardly find any differences between them after browsing some photographs in Internet.

About this snake, my friend suggests it is Trimeresurus albolabris, but according to the disturibution area, I think it is more like a female T. stejnegeri.

I don't know my herps of China, but let me be the first to welcome you to the forum! There are a number of folks on here with experience in herping China, so I'm sure you will receive any help needed in identification.

Very nice pics. Lovely patterning on the Odorrana schmackeri. I come across a lot of Dinodon rufozonatum here in Taiwan, so the yellow Dinodon makes a nice contrast to what I'm used to seeing.

D.rufozonatum is also very common in Mainland. And it is very interesting that the D.rufozonatum I found in Beijing is pretty different to the D.rufozonatum in southern provinces.

Thank you so much. Communicating with field herpers in other country is really enjoyable.
