|Scientific Name:||Litoria chloris|
|Species Authority:||(Boulenger, 1892)|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor/s:||Jean-Marc Hero, Ed Meyer, John Clarke|
|Reviewer/s:||Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson and Neil Cox)|
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
|Range Description:||This species has a scattered distribution along the Queensland and New South Wales coastline, from Prosperine in the north to mid-eastern New South Wales. The extent of occurrence of the species is approximately 220,000km2.|

|Population:||More information is needed.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||Usually associated with rainforest or wet sclerophyll forest. It spends much of its life high in the trees and is usually only seen in association with heavy rain when it descends to breed. Breeding is in spring and summer (October-February) after heavy rain when they congregate around flooded roadside ditches and dams in or near wet forest or along rainforest streams. Calling, amplexus and oviposition occurs in permanent and semi-permanent shallow pools in or beside streams, eggs are laid singly or in small clumps entangled in vegetation. Larvae are free swimming.|
|Major Threat(s):||Habitat loss is a threat to some populations. Chytridiomycosis might be a future threat to the species.|
|Conservation Actions:||Its range includes several protected areas and its habitat is protected where it occurs in rainforests.|
