Wow! That would be the first Rana tavasensis on iNat! Of the choices: http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identotron?observation_id=69563#q=&place=7183&taxon=25474
Its defintely not European Common Frog (Rana temporaria) or Agile Frog (Rana dalmatina). How do you rule out Iranian Long-Legged Frog (Rana macrocnemis), Taurus Frog (Rana holtzi) & Greek frog (Rana graeca) (unfortunately iNat doesn't have pictures of the last 2)

Very cool! Would you add it to the global amphibian bioblitz project? It would be a new species for the project!
