Hyla immaculata

Subgenus: Dryophytes
family: Hylidae
subfamily: Hylinae
Taxonomic Notes: Duellman et al. (Zootaxa 2016) treated two major clades as genera; AmphibiaWeb treats these two clades as subgenera(Hyla in the Old World; Dryophytes in the New World and East Asia), thus stabilizing traditional taxonomy.

From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is widespread over much of central, eastern, and northeastern China. This is largely a lowland species.

Habitat and Ecology

This species inhabits mixed and deciduous broadleaved forests, bushlands, meadows, swamps, paddy fields, ponds and the surrounding vegetation. It can be found along the banks of rivers, streams and lakes. Spawning and larval development takes place in stagnant ponds, puddles, oxbow lakes, flooded quarries and lakes with dense herbaceous vegetation.The species is presumed to tolerate some degree of habitat modification.


It is common in suitable habitat.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The species is threatened locally by pollution (often from agrochemical use) and by habitat loss to increasing urbanization.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in many protected areas.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a broad range of habitats, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.

Taxonomic Notes

The genus Dryophytes was resurrected from synonymy under Hyla by Duellman et al. (2016) and this species was transferred from Hyla to Dryophytes.
