Fejervarya vittigera (Wiegmann, 1834) commonly known as Luzon wart frog is an edible farm frog endemic to the Philippines. Chemical investigation of the dichloromethane extracts of F. vittigera has led to the isolation of cholesterol (1) and triacylglycerols (2) from the skin and the muscle and bones. The structures of 1 and 2 were identified by comparison of their NMR data with those reported in the literature
