Litoria from Penrose

Postby nonterra » Wed Mar 19, 2014 8:27 pm

Saw this one in Penrose State Forest (inland from Wollongong) a month ago. Looks most like L. leseuri to me. Only thing that has me doubting is geography.

It seems he snacked on a juicy grasshopper just before. :)

I agree that it looks superficially most like a Lesueur's Tree Frog.
Natural range is from Victoria to the Hawkesbury River, so geographic distribution is not a good enough reason in this case to exclude Litoria lesueuri.
