Need a frog ID near Kakadu

Postby CuriousC » Thu Mar 02, 2017 6:17 pm

I'm hoping someone can help me find an ID on this species of frog, there is very limited info online.

The individual was found near Batchelor in the Northern Territory (~100km south of Darwin), near wetlands but not adjacent to water; it was out in the early afternoon jumping around the leaf litter. It appears grey in the picture but was almost a metalic silver with very clear markings, and was about 12mm long. Any help would be much appreciate!

Nice shot, it is a Desert Tree Frog (Litoria rubella). The frogs from the Top End are very striped (particularly so as juveniles like the one in your photo) when compared to frogs from elsewhere.
