Most frogs have back green, often with a light green stripe. Irregularly shaped dark green spots are randomly distributed over the back. In the loin area the flanks are yellowish. Dark bands on the thighs continue onto the white underside.


It is a species of frog in the Ranidae family. The species is collected from the wild for human consumption. Its natural habitats are shrubby vegetation, rivers, swamps, freshwater lakes, freshwater marshes.


The species highly resembles Pelophylax ridibundus, from which it was only distinguished in 1991 by bio-acoustic analysis.
