The Oruge tree frog (Litoria modica) is a frog from the island New Guinea. Scientists saw it in between 1500 and 2000 meters above sea level in the mountains in the middle of Papua New Guinea and the Owen Stanley Mountains, but they did not see it on the Huon Peninsula. The scientists think it may also live in Indonesia.[1]

The adult frog is about 3.0 cm long.[2]
