Common Name="Leaf Green River Tree Frog" or "Southern leaf green tree frog" Family=Hylidae (tree frogs) Genus/Species=Litoria nudidigita (Lesson, 1829) Abundance &
Distribution=A moderately common species found south from Sydney through much of Gippsland. Habitat=Found along rocky rivers, particularly in warm temperate rainforests. Description=This is a fairly small (to 40mm long) and predominantly green (when mature) frog with a gold and black stripe along each side of its body. Apparently the normally green area can sometimes be brown, although I have mostly seen bright green ones. Similar Species=It is similar in appearance to {Litoria phyllochroa}, which is generally only found north of Sydney. Behaviour &
Observations=These frogs are good climbers, jumpers and swimmers. Males are most actively calling during summer in vegetation along streamsides. I have encountered them on several occasions when spotlighting along the rainforest creeks of east Gippsland. Call= Links=frogs.org.au Links=Wikipedia
