[Aroid-l] Arum lily (reed) frog
From: Emily.Yates at mobot.org on 2005.03.29 at 17:18:53(12805)|
Title: Arum lily (reed) frog
Does anyone on the list know of references, reprints of articles, or research on the relationship of the Arum lily (reed) frog, Hyperolius horstocki, and the arum lily, Zantedeschia aethiopica? This tiny frog (I believe endemic to South African Fynbos) inhabits the inflorescence of the Arum lily and can change its color to match its background inside the Arum lily for camoflauge. Beyond that I am having difficulty locating much information on this cool little creature, and would like to know more if anyone has experience with it.
Thanks for your help,
