Eastern Australian Sedgefrog (Litoria fallax)

This small species is usually green, but may also be brown. Brown seems to be a more common winter colour; green seems to prevail during summer. There may be irregular small black spots on the back. The upper lip is cream and there is a darker brown, or black stripe running though the eye extending almost to the base of the forearm. The belly is pale. The fingers have a little webbing and the toe webbing is well developed. Eastern Sedgefrogs grow to about 30 mm.

Eastern Sedgefrogs are usually seen or heard in association with sedges and reeds around dams. They are common in Melaleuca swamps and in some suburban situations.

Eastern Sedgefrog are found in coastal areas, from north Queensland to southern NSW.
