Collinses’ Mountain Chorus Frog

Pseudacris collinsorum (State Status: S3; vulnerable)


Recently split from Pseudacris brachyphona, P. collinsorum are native to the coastal plateau of Alabama and elevated areas south of the Tennessee River in Mississippi (Ospina et al., 2020). They are only found in northeast Mississippi. They are small frogs with similar brown patterns of most chorus frogs. Often tan to brown with darker curved markings and a triangular mark on head (Peterson et al., 2016).
