Right after it rained hard from about 4-5:30pm, a chorus of these frogs could be heard ringing throughout the canyons. We hiked through dense juniper inclines to about 2000ft elevation where the limestone cliff/outcropping is most prominent. The frogs were spaced an average about 20ft away from each other along the outcrop. This individual was found underneath a limestone boulder. It was about 7:30pm, at which point the storm had already past, leaving about 50% cloud cover and a temperature of about 60°F. By its head size I would estimate its SVL to be about 6cm but I did not get a good look at the whole body. The following is a link to the call I recorded a few feet away from the frog;
Heard several calling in this area after first rain in an appreciable time.
Recording only, not seen. Link to recording included.
Two different morphs. Testing for chytrid June 4-15.
Possibly C. bransfordii. Nearly impossible to tell apart in the field. Fairly common along trail system at La Suerte. Testing for chytrid June 4-15.
Many rain frogs / litter frogs were observed on the trail system here. At least one individual was identified as likely C. megacephalus, although a larger diversity surely exists!
