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.
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.
