Acris crepitans. Schmidt & Necker 1935:64-5. Diagnosis.—A small hylid frog (largest Illinois specimen 31.2 mm. from snout to vent), fig. 65, with digital discs scarcely wider than penultimate joints; extensivelj webbed feet; pointed head; tibia 58 per cent' or more of body length; usually a few to many dorsal warts; light line from each eye to shoulder; dark postfemoral stripe on each leg; numerous vertical, light bars on snout. Variation.—During the breeding season of Blanchard's cricket frog the male is easily distinguished from the female by the discol- ored throat and vocal pouch. Other dimor- phism has not been noted in the Illinois se- ries. I have been unable to find ontogenetic variation other than size. A study of adequate series reveals only minor geographic variation for this frog in Illinois. There is some indication that speci- mens in the southern fifth of the state are relatively small, the largest of a series of 37 specimens from this region being only 28 mm. from snout to vent. The largest speci- mens in series from other areas exceed this. Fig. 65.—An adult Acris crepitans blanchardi from McLean County, Illinois. The ground- color may be gray, brown, black, olive, or tan; the markings, when present, are green, olive, or rusty
