  • no feeding for metamorphosis to froglet; cloud forests of Tasmania sea-level to 1100 m alpine heath (ref: Wiki)
  • largest Australian anuran eggs, longest a_b (ref: MuelAugu2012)
  • hatching at stage 25, birth at stage 37 (ref: Gosn1960)
  • Arrhenius applies for 5, 10 15 C till hatch, but not to 5 C cohort between hatch and birth (ref: MuelAugu2012)


  • This species decreases kappa between E_Hh and E_Hj, and resets after E_Hj
  • Results of this entry are reported in MuelAug2012
