Author's notes

About 20mm body ,,looked in my frog book & Max Campbell's photo ,think it might be C.s but now I think it looks like Southern brown tree frog Litoria ewingi .

Hi Liz, The big toe pads certainly suggest a tree frog, but I think Litoria ewingii and verreauxii are very hard to tell apart. A look at the inner surfaces of the thighs is useful - should be orange in verreauxii. But maybe Harrison can tell without that.

Just consulted another frog book, and it seems the orange thigh surface (yeah, maybe a hint of it in the photo) doesn't help that much. It says verreauxii has a dumpy build and ewingii is noticeably slender, which suggests your guy is verreauxii. But I'm still inclined to leave it for Harrison to decide.
