Torrent frogs are an interesting group of frogs found in the rainforests of north-east Australia. There are four species in the group: the Mountain Mistfrog (Litoria nyakalensis), the Armoured Mistfrog (Litoria lorica), the Waterfall Frog (Litoria nannotis) and the Common Mistfrog (Litoria rheocola).
All of these species were once abundant along streams in the Wet Tropics region of northeastern Queensland. In the late 1980s and early 1990s the populations suffered dramatic declines. The Mountain and Armoured mistfrogs, both localised species from the uplands, disappeared completely. The two more widespread species disappeared from the uplands but remain lower down. Read more
