Hi Tbaker,

It's a Neobatrachus of some sort, but I'm really not going to be able to tell you whether it's pictus, centralis or sudelli. Someone more knowledgeable will hopefully come along and sort out the distinction for us! :P

To make things a little easier, genetic and call analysis resulted in N. centralis being merged with sudelli in 2010!

North of the Flinders is most likely N. sudelli (now "sudellae" after the naming was clarified in 2012).
