Southern leopard frogs have rounded or oblong spots, the long fold on either side of the back runs from nose to groin, and to ID them from pickerel frogs there is no spot on the nose in L. sphenocephalus and their underparts are cream/pink/white not yellow. This one was found when I worked on the Mofep Project.
Missouri Ozarks, forest and pond-shore. We did find them in the woods even when we couldnt see a pond near-by, most likely they were making their way from one wet spot to the next.
