    Found hopping across the lounge room floor around midnight. Released back into the wild promptly after photos taken. Other adults heard calling in/around nearby dam - calls matched to recording for this species on https://frogs.org.au/frogs/species/Paracrinia/haswelli/. May be the first sighting of this species in the Canberra region? Nearest sighting on ALA is 50km closer to the coast.
