Pelophylax lessonae

Posted by Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 12 July 2011 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Pelophylax lessonae (NL: Poelkikker / EN: Pool frog / DE: Kleine Wasserfrosch) is a European frog. The reasons for declining populations are decreased pond habitat from human encroachment and also air pollution leading to over-nitrification of pond waters. Its specific name was chosen by the Italian herpetologist Lorenzo Camerano in order to honour his master Michele Lessona.
