The little grass frog, tree frog, least tree frog, black-spotted tree frog, or little chorus frog (Pseudacris ocularis) is a frog. It lives in the southeastern United States. It lives as far north as Virginia and far south as Florida.[1][2][3]

The adult frog is 11 to 20 millimetres (0.43 to 0.79 inches) long from nose to rear end. It is very small. There is some webbed skin on each foot. The toes have disks on them for climbing. This frog has a stripe on each side of its body, going over each eye.[2]
