Apart from their DNA profile, Phyllomedusine frogs of the genus Cruziohyla differ from those within the Genus Agalychnis by the unique peptides in thier skin and their morphology – colouration, extended skin to their legs and calcars, and eye colouration (they have two colours to the eye: grey and yellow). The two genera are also separated by a difference in breeding biology. Although both lay their eggs over water, Cruziohyla species lay their’s within or over the hollow water-filled trunks of fallen trees in primary forest. Here is short clip of finding the eggs of Cruziohyla craspedopus in Ecuador. More Information at
