Raorchestes glandulosus (common names: glandular bush frog, rough-skinned bush frog, southern bubble-nest frog, and many others) is a species of frog in the Rhacophoridae family. It is endemic to the Western Ghats, India, and known from the states of Karnataka and Kerala.

Raorchestes glandulosus are small frogs. Males are 22–27 mm (0.87–1.06 in) in snout-vent length. Among the generally small Raorchestes, this makes them medium-sized. Its distinguishing feature, at least among the species from the Western Ghats, is its yellow dorsal surface of the forearm.

Raorchestes glandulosus is an arboreal species, usually found higher that 4 metres above the ground. It can be found within rainforest but also disturbed habitats forest fringes near coffee plantations and gardens. Raorchestes glandulosus is threatened by habitat loss. source
