Uperoleia micromeles

Uperoleia

Uperoleia is a genus of frogs, native to Australia in the family Myobatrachidae. These are small squat frog, more commonly know as "toadlets". They have glandular skin, often with a pair of raised glands behind each eye, or on the flanks. They have bumpy, rough skin giving them the appearance of a small toad hence the name "toadlet". There are two distinct types of calls Uperoleia species make. Either a "click" or a "squelch". It is rare that more than one species of this genus is found together at the one locality. These species in this genus show great similarities in body shape and colouration making them difficult to tell apart. Call analysis and skull anatomy is often required to confirm identification. This genus is the largest of any in the Myobatrachidae family.
