Amietia viridireticulata (Pickersgill, 2007)
Original Published Description:
River Frog (English)
A large brown to olive green frog with irregular darker markings on the dorsum. The dorsal pattern and color can vary. The snout is pointed in profile. Some individuals have a light vertebral stripe. Dorsolateral folds are distinct. There are raised glands scattered along the sides. There is a light stripe above the lip and a dark mask that runs from the tip of the snout, under the eye and over the tympanum. Toes are extensively webbed, with at most one joint of the longest toe free of webbing (Text from Harper et al., 2010).
Males are 41 – 81 mm in snout-vent length, and females are 50 - 90 mm (Harper et al., 2010).

This species is found in streams in forest and montane grassland at elevations between 1740 and 2000 m (Harper et al., 2010).
Eggs are laid on the edges of streams. Larvae hatch and develop in the water (Text from Harper et al., 2010).
