Litoria tornieri — Tornier’s Frog
Also known as:
Tornier’s Australian Treefrog, Black-shinned Rocketfrog
This was the second of two frogs I saw hopping in the leaf litter within a couple of feet of each other. They were about the same size and shape and color, and I assumed that they were the same species at the time. But when I studied the photograph later I realized that the first one was Litoria watjulumensis and this one was not. I believe this is a pale individual of L. tornieri, but there are some other similar species in the area and I am not confident.
