Results of a survey of the present distribution of the brown tree frog (Litoria ewingi) in the Manawatu and Rangitikei region of the North Island of New Zealand show that it has spread considerably in the quarter-century since its introduction. A previously undocumented liberation is described and some information on the habits and habitats of the frog, based on observations in the Foxton area, is presented.
