Hi
while up the creek yesterday I spotted this little frog, little is the key word he would be approx 14-19 mm long, and a good swimmer. we are in the kiewa valley in the north east of Vic. Can anyone hazard a guess as to his identification?

Hi Robert,

Glad you got the pic on as it makes it easier to ID. I've only spent a bit of time frogging in the Kiewa Valley but I think it is either a Common Eastern Froglet (Crinia signifera) or a Beeping Froglet (Crinia parinsignifera). I'm leaning towards the former. Both species occur in that area and look similar - call is the best way to differentiate between them.

Hope that helps,

Aaron
