Another tiny Crowdy head local, Litoria fallax did not achieve separate status from Litoria bicolor until 1969 and the two species are closely related.
L. fallax belongs to the species group known as the Bicolor Group. Litoria fallax is one of the smallest of the arboreal Litoria species. It is of slender build and has enlarged discs on its fingers. It is very similar in appearance to L. bicolor and is best differentiated, where possible, by call.
