Troschel's tree frog, the blue-flanked tree frog or white-banded tree frog (Boana calcarata) is a frog that lives in Brazil, Surinam, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, French Guiana and Guyana. Scientists have seen it as high as 700 meters above sea level.[3][1]

The adult male frog is 2.8 to 3.6 cm long from nose to rear end and the adult female frog is 4.6 to 5.6 cm long. This frog sometimes has a black and white stripe down the side of its body. The rest of the skin of its back is usually brown but can be reddish.[1]
