Description

Pseudacris streckeri can reach a maximum size of 48 mm. It is the largest of the chorus frogs, with a stout, toadlike body and forearms. This frog has a dark stripe through its eyes from snout to shoulder, dark spots along the side of the body, dark blotches on the dorsum (back), a white belly, and yellow or orange-yellow pigmentation on the groin. Coloration may be gray, brown, olive, or green in the subspecies P. streckeri streckeri, but the dorsum is never green in the subspecies P. streckeri illinoisensis. Most P. streckeri have a dark spot below the eye. P. streckeri can be distinguished from all other chorus frogs within its range by its lack of a continuous light line along the upper lip. During the breeding season, the vocal pouch of the male becomes dark.
