Leaf Green Tree Frog

A specimen from the "hybrid zone" of the Leaf Green Tree Frog (Litoria phyllochroa) and the Southern Leaf Green Tree Frog (L. nudidigitus), showing physical characteristics of both species. These small stream-dwelling frogs (averaging only 40mm in length), are native to eastern Australia and occur together south of Sydney. The two species are differentiated only by distribution, call and slight differences in flank markings.
