Another Darkes Forest frog

Postby gtsteve » Thu Mar 08, 2007 9:06 pm

I saw a lot of these recently just above the waterfall, one more rain and I imagine that they will all go over, I moved a few to a deeper hole a bit further back. In the scheme of things it may not matter, there were a lot, but you can't help feeling sorry for the defenceless little critters. Is it an l. ewingii?

Not the most attractive little frog, but strangely cute.

You don't get ewingii at Darkes, I would say that L. phyllochroa but possibly lesueurii, but its a hard angle to tell from.

Looks like L. phllyochora with the rounded snout but there all pretty much the same at that age, but still I'd say phyllochroa.
