Identification needed - It this a Chinese frog?

Can you identify this foam?

May 2013. Paul Antoine Mayer recently took these images of what appears to be frogspawn foam near Shanghai in China. I know little about the tree frogs of eastern China, and I am hoping that one of our readers might be able to provide an identification of this foam. 

The common tree frog, (Polypedates leucomystax) is found in China and it does make foam nests, but, as far as I can tell, its nests don't look like this at all. 

IS IT FROGSPAWN, AND IF SO, OF WHICH SPECIES OF FROG?
