FrogCrinia parinsignifera

Plains Froglet

Current conservation status: Common. Evidence to suggest large population fluctuations.

Family: Myobatrachidae

Length: 30mm

Appearance: Colour ranges from light to dark. The pattern on the back is variable, ranging from individuals that are smooth and unpatterned to strongly marked and raised longitudinal stripes and bumps.

Breeding: throughout the year but mainly between August and November.

Habitat: Prefers to breed in deep, permanent pools. It has benefited from the proliferation of farm dams in the region and can be found around the edges of dams, swamps and other wetlands. This species prefers standing water but may sometimes be heard calling from slow moving stretches of some streams and rivers.

Distribution: Very common in the region and is particularly associated with farm dams. It is distributed predominantly in the open country and plains and is found only below 800m altitude.

Biology: Male frogs call from amongst vegetation at the water's edge or emergent vegetation. Within these habitats they shelter under logs and other debris, usually in moist depressions or near the water. It is not uncommon to find dozens of individuals under one log or rock. Eggs and tadpoles are aquatic and can be found in ponds, dams, swamps, flooded grassland, hitches and hollows.

Call description: A slight drawn out "wwrreeeeekk", repeated regularly.
