Common Name=Brown Tree Frog Family=Hylidae (tree frogs) Genus/Species=Litoria ewingi (Duméril & Bibron, 1841) — alternative spelling Litoria ewingii Abundance &
Distribution=Common from around Sydney through southern Victoria to Adelaide and also throughout Tasmania. Habitat=Found in a wide variety of habitats from remote swamps to suburban gardens. Description=These are medium-sized frogs, usually predominantly brownish in color although they can sometimes be greenish too. Like other tree-frogs they have noticeable toe-pads, which they use for climbing around rocks or indeed trees. See frogs.org.au for more information, including distinguishing these from similar species such as {Litoria verreauxi} and {Litoria lesueuri}. Behaviour &
Observations=Males can be heard calling throughout the year, usually after rain. They are accomplished travellers and can be found well away from water. I have seen them in bushes around swamps, where they sun themselves during the day, but often only hear them dropping into the water as I approach.
