The breeding of Nasikabatrachus sahyadrensis was monitored for three consecutive years (2007- 2009) in an evergreen forest patch in the Anamalai tiger reserve, Western Ghats. The relationship between climatic variables and pattern of breeding was studied. Few anurans from this region have a reproductive mode analogous to the one observed in N. sahyadrensis. The phenology of calling activity and reproduction of N. sahyadrensis is probably correlated with the onset of south west monsoonal rainfall.
