User's notes

Identification is only tentative- would like correction/confirmation. The frog was found inside a suburban house (Ainslie)- means of access to house unknown (possibly sealed(?) chimney. It was taken outside and released into garden. Dimension: the green tile in photo 1 is 9.5 cm in width/length.

Second thoughts - more like to be a Green Tree Frog? (Litoria caerulea) in which case an escapee?

Immature Litoria caerulea?

Thanks- we think the black 'markings' might be sooty bits of web debris etc , if, as we think, it may have entered the house down the old disused chimney (which we thought was sealed)..

Must have been an escapee or a deliberate release,
If you see it again please keep it, and I will organize a transfer into the care of ACT Wildlife as this species is not native to our local area and might not survive the next winter.
