Forest Chirping Frog

Adenomera hylaedactyla


Tiny frog about 25mm (1") long. Grey brown dorsal surface with greenish brown mottled markings with a larger area of of colour between the eyes. Skin is slightly ridged and there are 3 light coloured pinstripes running up the back. The distance from the end of the snout to the eye is about 1.5x the diameter of the eye itself. (see notes)


Found on the forest trail heading from the river to an oxbow lake on the forest floor in South East Peru within the Amazon Basin.


There are two very similar species here. This one and A. andreae. In the field a major physical difference beween the two is that the distance between the eye and the end of the snout is greater in this species. Ref: AmphibiaWeb.
