Jeg har ændret lokaliteten så det er helt præcis, plejer kun at sætte et bynavn ind. Marshland as Sumpf, farmland and woods...

No green spots on the map of Copenhagen means not there is no frog there, but I must admit, location is one criteria. The tympanum is quite close to the eye, so this might vote more for Dalmatina than Temporaria. Is there any marshland around? I think it is not Temporaria and Dalmatina and Arvalis look indeed very similar.

With the slightly pointed snout I would favor arvalis, but I would not dare to make the call unless it presents its hind feet metatarsal tubercle for inspection:-)

So, the problem is not the frog but your location! I will check again...

Hi Jeannette! Lovely picture for #500! Congratulations!I agree with your comment about the difficulty in differentiating these three:-). There are only a few isolated colonies of R. dalmatina in Denmark.

Mange tak søde bayucca :)
Dine er også af bedre kvalitet...
I have read that it is difficult to determine if it is Rana temporaria, Rana arvalis or Rana dalmatina, you have to look at their feet and toes. I didn't know that when I took the photo so perhaps I will never know which one it is... But it looks right what you suggested. Actually dalmatina is not very common here...
