Dainty Green Treefrog
Litoria gracilenta

The Dainty Green Treefrog (Litoria gracilenta) is a small treefrog of northeastern tropical Queensland.  They appear to occur within a variety of habitats in their range.  I have found them and heard them calling in rainforest, sugar cane fields, and flooded ditches in industrial parks.

Although it is a pretty little frog, its call is surprisingly harsh.  It is a long buzzy, nasal "raaagh" that ascends slightly in pitch before leveling off.
