Artist's Description

I photographed this specimen that I was sure was a Smooth Toadlet (Uperoleia laevigata) as well but its leg mmarkings were yellow! According to Wikipedia there are two other very similar Uperoleia species, the Dusky Toadlet, (Uperoleia fusca) and the Tyler’s Toadlet, (Uperoleia tyleri). In all three of these species there is a red/orange/yellow patch in the thigh, back of legs and behind the knee. In the Smooth Toadlet this patch is quite large and is almost always red, it can however be orange but is not yellow. In the Dusky Toadlet this colour patch is more reduced and is almost always orange, but can be red and occasionally yellow. In the Tyler’s Toadlet this patch is rarely anything other than yellow.

Can anyone help?. This was photographed in Woolgoolga, NSW Australia
