Caption: Lace-lid Frog (Nyctimystes dayi). This distinctive frog grows to around 5 cms and occurs only in the rainforests of tropical northeastern Queensland. Its conservation status is endangered. It belongs to the Hylidae family of treefrogs, though it is the only Australian representative of its genus. The distinctive pattern of its eyelid is most distinctive and hence the frog's common name. The disruptive pattern of the closed lid serves as camouflage for the frog's otherwise huge and distinctive eye; the lid is closed when the frog is resting by day. Crystal Cascades, Cairns, North Queensland, Australia. Image 1 of 2.
