Please assist with an ID of this frog. My father came across it on the farm near Bathurst, Eastern Cape.

Thank you for the reply. They seem to be quite varied in pattern and coloration?

Yes they are quite varied in pattern and coloration. As you may know, 3 species of Painted/Marbled Reed Frog (mamoratus, taeniatus and verrucosus) are defined and within each there is considerable variation.

See Tyrone Pings excellent photos of the variation:
