Crinia or Pseudophryne?

Postby troy_waves » Thu Jun 05, 2014 5:41 am

Hi guys, a guy in Beerwah forestry sent me these photos. It kind of looks like a Pseudophryne raveni but with long legs and dull colours, or a Crinia tinnula with no patterning... Anyone got any ideas? He said it was about the size of between a 5 and 10c coin.

Definitely not a Pseudophryne. It is a Crinia species, not sure I would rule out Crinia signifera completely. Are there any shots of the ventral surface?
