Rockingham, North Carolina. May 4, 1998
This frog is nearly identical to the Gray Treefrog (Dryophytes versicolor). One difference is buried deep within the cell – versicolor has twice as many chromosomes as chrysocelis. The other difference appears at night, when the frogs call; chrysocelis‘ call is a fast staccato trill, while versicolor’s call is a slow staccato trill.
