Dave,

Although the pictures don't show it, the eyes were definitely all black.
I had already looked at the 'frogs of New England' and its eyes and body looked like the 'booroolong tree frog'. I thought as the 'booroolong frog' is in Western fall country and this frog was found in eastern fall that it was unlikely to be that.
The colour was also only very slight in the armpits and a bit brighter underneath, there was no colour visible from above.
If I had to identify it from the pictures I would have said 'booroolong tree frog'.
I will try to get better pics as I have seen a few of these frogs.
What is the distinguishing features of the 'booroolong tree frog' that would enable me to make an identification over the Litoria peroni, I assume both would have the 'cross-shaped' pupil ?
