Dendropsophus leali — Plain-colored Treefrog
Also known as:
San Carlos Treefrog
This species was placed in the large genus Hyla until a major revision of that genus in 2005.
This drab little treefrog is primarily identified by process of elimination; it doesn't have any of the interesting features of other treefrogs. Also, it has that lone white spot on its upper lip, which according to Bartlett & Bartlett (2003) is a mark of this species. However, an apparently knowledgable iNaturalist contributor thinks this must be some other species of Dendropsophus.
