Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Osteocephalus planiceps
Flat-Headed Bromeliad Treefrog

Depto Loreto, Peru
January 20, 2011

Perhaps the most ornate of the bromeliad frogs.  A good indicator for this variably patterned species is the size of the tympanum, which is around 2/3 the size of the eye.  Other osteo species typically have smaller tympani.
