Comprehensive DescriptionRead full entry
Hyla chinensis is 25-33 mm in SVL, with females only slightly larger than males. The head is longer than wide. The back is smooth and is dark green in color. Ventrally, the frog is yellow. The lips are brown with small yellowish brown dots. A black stripe runs from the tympanic membrane to the eye. Small scattered black spots are present along the sides (Lue 1990).
There is a single report of a specimen from Viet Nam (Tam Dao, Vinh Phuc Province; Nguyen et al. 2005), but it has been questioned whether the Viet Nam specimen may actually be Hyla annectans (Frost 2009).
