Green true frog (Pelophylax sp.) data


Based on their morphological characters it is fairly difficult to make a distinction between the three green true frog species: the Marsh frog (Pelophylax ridibundus), the Pool frog (Pelophylax lessonae) and the hybrid of these two: the Edible frog (Pelophylax kl. esculentus). As many populations are mixed in Hungary, even the photos are not helping identifying certain observations. As an advice, if you are not sure about the species of the spotted individual, you should choose Edible frog and mention as a remark that "Species ID is not sure"!
