Orinoco Lime Treefrog

Sphaenorhynchus lacteus


Adult males measure 26–42 mm (1.0–1.7 in) and females 38–46 mm (1.5–1.8 in) in snout–vent length. The snout is pointed in dorsal view and angles sharply back when viewed from the side.


found in rainforest at 500m but also flooded plains, floating meadows, ponds, and large lagoons in forest clearings, at forest edges, and in savanna. It has also been recorded in leaf litter in tropical rainforest, in seasonally flooded agricultural land, and flooded roadside ditches.


I saw this frog and this species for the first time back in Brownsberg Nature Park in Suriname.
