The Frog Finder keys are short descriptions with the main features listed to help you identify a frog on sight and by region. The Southwest Frog Finder divides the area in to 5 regions.
We chose these regions based on a Perth-centric view of the southwest. This explains the 2 regions that comprise the Perth frog fauna (Swan Coastal Plain and Darling Range).
The Southwest Forests of WA is a special place for frogs, with many species with small ranges in ancient forests. This region contains WA's most endangered frogs - the white and yellow-bellied frogs and the sunset frog. The Wheatbelt region host many arid-adapted frogs in addition to many of the frogs of the Perth region. The North Coast has several species particular to the region such as the sandhill frogs.
