This small frog is usually a light grey-brown colour with irregular dark flecks down its back.
Haswell's Froglet looks like many other small frogs, but has toes with fringes around the edges. Haswell's Froglet has orange-red patches under its arms and legs, and a smooth pale brown belly. No other frog in eastern Australia has these features.
Haswell's Froglet is usually found living near water such as creeks, ponds, dams, ditches and swamps.
Haswell's Froglet is found in eastern New South Wales and eastern Victoria.
You are most likely to hear the male Haswell's Froglet's call in woodlands and coastal heath between August and March. It sounds like a short 'ank', slowly repeated.
