Pseudacris ornata

Ornate Chorus Frog

The Ornate Chorus Frog (Pseudacris ornata) was named and classified by Holbrook, in 1836.

The name of the genus comes from the Greek pseudes (false) and akris (locust), probably a reference to the repeated rasping trill of most Chorus Frogs, which is similar to that of the insect. The species name is from the Latin ornatus (decorated).
