Green Froglet in June

Green Tree Froglet

The sun shone and the perfect shot presented itself. That little frog I told about a few days ago, that I found in the bath with an overgrowth of azolla fern, turns out to be that one himself, a green froglet with a brown stripe from snout to shoulder.

You can just see how very advanced he looks to still have a tail. Quite a large tail too. Tail and body together about 8 centimetres in length.

And I have no idea what species he might be. The only frogs with that kind of marking in the Field Guide to Frogs of Australia are the Peron's Tree Frog and the Green Leaf Frog thought the Peron's is marbled green.

So while this is a sighting, it is not good enough a sighting for identification. Unless someone else has an idea?
