Gray treefrog

Hyla versicolor or H. chrysoscelis

Description:

About 1.5 inches long, with mottled gray skin. According to the Virginia Herpetological Society, H. versicolor and H. chrysoscelis are indistinguishable in the field except by their call (which I did not hear).

Habitat:

Forages in trees and shrubs near standing water.

Notes:

Both gray treefrog species are known from Chesterfield County, Virginia. VHS says that H. chrysoscelis is usually not seen before May, but this is not enough to make a positive ID on my spotting.
