The Nantou flying frog, Taiwan tree frog, Moltrech's green tree frog or Moltrecht's tree frog (Zhangixalus moltrechti) is a frog. It lives in Taiwan.[2][3][1]

People have seen this frog in forests, tree farms, and tea farms. The female frog lays eggs in caves or on plants near still water. After the eggs hatch, the rain pushes the tadpoles into the water. People have seen this frog between 0 and 2500 meters above sea level.[1]

Scientists say this frog is not in danger of dying out.[1]
