The amphibian fauna of the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, sandwiched between India and China, is poorly known. Most data collected on this group of animals for the country comes from a few interested individuals or citizen scientists. Based on information provided by a citizen scientist, we report for the first time on the occurrence of the Gammii Frog, Nanorana gammii (Anderson, 1871) in Zhemgang District of Central Bhutan. In this paper, we provide information on the newly discovered locality, habitat and conservation status of this species in Bhutan. We also report on the use of N. gammii by the local communities for food.
