Vernacular names
English: Burmeister's Treefrog

Boana prasina is a species of frog in the family Hylidae. It is endemic to Southeastern Brazil and known from the states of Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro, and São Paulo,[1][2] and possibly further south.[1] Common name Burmeister's treefrog has been proposed to this species.[1][2]

Boana prasina occurs in forested habitats and in grassland and pastureland at elevations of 800–1,400 m (2,600–4,600 ft) above sea level. These frogs are usually found on vegetation near ponds, pools, and lakes. Breeding takes place in permanent pools and small streams; the egg clutches are attached to vegetation in the water.[1]

Boana prasina is a common species, although some populations appear to have disappeared. It is threatened by water pollution and habitat loss caused by fire. It is present in several protected areas.[1]
