With recent advances in genetic taxonomy, Litoria jungguy was described as a distinctly different species from its former L. lesueuri. It is most easily distinguished by its distribution, although the posterior coloring of the inner thigh has white or cream spots on an otherwise black surface for L. jungguy, whilst L. lesueuri has blue spots on a black backing.
Treefrogs have become synonymous with environmentalism. Their beauty, diversity and susceptability to environmental stresses, have elevated their importance to a level of almost universal appeal.
Every now and then we are advised that certain species are disappearing in the wild. The green-eyed treefrog Litoria genimaculata (3rd from left), is one species that attracts such concern.
