    Default What species is this ?

    I have been trying to figure out what species this is. i guess its part of Centrolenidae but that is all i know. The previous owner bought them at hamn as larvae and was wrongly described species. I have them now they are a pretty simple to keep but i want to find out more.

    I would be shocked if they are Centrolenids, but there is always some possibility that they found their way into the trade. More pictures would be great, but even then, it would be very difficult to pinpoint the species if they are in fact Centrolenids. I'll keep looking around though. Maybe Kurt has some idea.

    Best,
    Alex

    I'm still looking but Boophis or Hyperolius phantasticus seem plausible or possibly Hypsiboas. Many of these find their way into the industry called "glass frogs". You can check out places like AmphibiaWeb and CalPhotos (the same thing really) to compare photos with your frog.

    I am going to back up what Alex said until we see some more pictures.

    I think I've seen something like that in a store, and if it wasn't called a "glass frog," then it was called a "jelly frog." I have no idea at this point what their scientific name is. I vote for uploading more pics and letting the pros give it another go.

    Jelly frog is a name sometimes used for certain reed frogs, most likely Hyperolius sp.

    I had a talk with previous owner he belived they were south-American from a very little described species and since these are good at changeing colour its hard to find the correct one .
