This spotted frog visited after spring rain last year. Maybe the spotted marsh frog but I'm unsure.
Backyard, probably strayed from its habitat
Great find martinl. I sometimes hear them at water but have never been able to see one in the wild.
Thank you, that seems right. I wasn't confident to ID because I expected the stripe down the back as in the pic in my book. It seems to be very variable.
Hey Martin. I'm pretty sure that's the spotted marsh frog, Lymnodynastes tasmaniensis. More information about them here: http://frogs.org.au/frogs/species/Limnod...Can be confused with L. fletcheri, but L. fletcheri has more irregular spots (size, shape and position). Also can be confused with L. peroni, but L. peroni typically has the darker markings stretched out into stripes.
Lat: -37.73, Long: 145.38
