Murud black slender toad or widow slender toad, Ansonia vidua, Hertwig, Min, Haas & Das, 2014 – 2130m ASL.

The specific name vidua is Latin for “widow” and refers to the uniform brownish-black colouration of this species, much like what widows have traditionally chosen. It also refers to the fact that males of this species are unknown. During my visit to the habitat of A. vidua I searched intensively for tadpoles and also males, but also without success. I have to say that I had to fight with heavy downpours.
