It is a small, arboreal frog native to the temperate forests, grasslands, marshes, and river areas of much of the central part of the state, from the Grand Canyon eastwards. They are not usually found too far from vernal pools or drainage areas where water can be found year round. Usually the frog grows no larger than 1.8 inches (4.6 centimeters) There are several areas where this amphibian is common and populations stable. Up until about 2003 the frog’s Latin name was Hyla eximia, however it was recognized as a separate species from Hyla eximia.
