Species:H. intermedia

The Italian tree frog (Hyla intermedia) is a species of frog in the Hylidae family, found in Italy, Slovenia, Switzerland, and possibly San Marino. Its natural habitats are temperate forests, rivers, intermittent rivers, freshwater marshes, intermittent freshwater marshes, arable land, and urban areas. It is threatened by habitat loss.

HYLA INTERMEDIA

La raganella italiana (Hyla intermedia Boulenger, 1882) è un anfibio della famiglia Hylidae.
È una rana di dimensioni medio-piccole, che raggiunge una lunghezza di 4-5 cm.
Per molti versi è estremamente simile a Hyla arborea: la colorazione del dorso è di colore verde brillante, con ventre biancastro nettamente demarcato da una linea di colore dal grigio al beige. Dall'occhio si diparte una evidente striscia nera laterale che si prolunga fino all'inserzione dell'arto inferiore. Il maschio possiede un sacco vocale sotto la gola, che gonfiato raggiunge quasi la grandezza del corpo. Le dita sono dotate di cuscinetti adesivi.
È una specie insettivora.
Queste raganelle raggiungono le raccolte d'acqua dove si riproducono (pozze temporanee, laghi, canali, fiumi a corrente lenta) a fine primavera. I maschi emettono canti udibili anche a grande distanza per attirare le femmine. L'amplesso è ascellare, la fecondazione esterna. Questa specie depone molte meno uova rispetto alle rane ed ai rospi, solo alcune centinaia.
L'areale di questa specie è prevalentemente ristretto all'Italia (compresa la Sicilia ed esclusa la Sardegna).
Piccole popolazioni sono presenti nella Svizzera meridionale e nella Slovenia occidentale.
Ha un range altitudinale che va dal livello del mare sino a 1.855 m s.l.m.
In passato questa entità veniva considerata considerata una semplice varietà di Hyla arborea (H. arborea var. intermedia). Studi genetici hanno definito le popolazioni italiane come facenti parte di una specie a sé stante, per la quale fu inizialmente proposto il nome di H. italica (Nascetti et al., 1995). Successivamente le è stato attribuito il nome attuale di H. intermedia.

Hope you did not disturb its sleep, Luciano! :)
Very good capture amid dense foliage to accentuate the principle of perfect camouflage.
The colour tones are wonderful here.

Ram

Hello Luciano,
It's funny how tree frogs seem to always cling so tightly to their perches and remain absolutely motionless.
This is a great close-up shot showing us the beautiful colors of this particular species and it's fine features. I love it's rich green colors which make it blend in perfectly with it's surroundings. Well done!!

Hola Luciano, una foto hermosa de esta Rana que me parece de gran tamaño. Me gusta la luz, el color, el entorno y claro, la belleza de la especie, gran foto...saludos.

Bonsoir Luciano,

La branche aide au cadrage de la grenouille. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la grenouille. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne soire.
