Rana granosa - Hypsiboas cinerascens

This South American frog belonging to the species Hypsiboas cinerascens (Hylidae) is recognizable by its solid green color, rough skin, evenly-spaced little yellow dots, and blue rings around its eyes.

This is a nocturnal and arboreal frog found in natural and secondary tropical rainforests, and in clearings. Occurs in the Guianas, in the Amazon Basin in Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia.

A recent study (2013) based on an integrative analysis of individuals collected in the Ecuadorian and Peruvian Amazon, shows that Hypsiboas cinerascens is in fact a species complex.

There’s shysters in any trade, and they’re the worst kind of shysters who will take advantage of another person’s misfortune. There’s those I know will fleece a widow of less than a week for a solid oak coffin, satin lining, solid brass handles’ the lot, when a plain veneer will do the job. I haven’t heard a corpse complain yet.
