I joined the Australian Museum’s FrogID project in early 2020 to be able to then submit audio recordings of frog calls, via their FrogID app, from each of our dams. The project has identified more frog species than I expected:
– Bleating tree frog (Litoria dentata) – Eastern dwarf tree frog (Litoria fallax) – Broad-palmed frog (Litoria latopalmata) – Peron's tree frog (Litoria peronii) – Desert tree frog (Litoria rubella) – Whistling Tree Frog (Litoria verreauxii)
– Smooth toadlet(Uperoleia laevigata)
With 127 recordings, as at November 2022, here's the number of occurrences of each species: 86 Crinia parinsignifera 73 Limnodynastes tasmaniensis 64 Crinia signifera 60 Uperoleia laevigata 37 Litoria fallax 34 Litoria peronii 10 Litoria latopalmata 5 Litoria dentata 1 Litoria verreauxii 1 Litoria rubella 1 Limnodynastes dumerilii
