Extreme south-central Kansas, through most of Oklahoma and east to central Arkansas and south through most of central, South, and East Texas to extreme northwestern Louisiana, USA.


In the Pseudacris nigrita group. Reviewed by Smith, 1966, Cat. Am. Amph. Rept., 27: 1–2. Cocroft and Ryan, 1995, Animal Behav., 49: 283–303, discussed advertisement call in an evolutionary context. Shepard, Brown, and Butterfield, 2005, in Lannoo (ed.), Amph. Declines: 484–485, provided a detail account that summarized the range and relevant literature, in the sense of including Pseudacris illinoensis. See comment under Pseudacris illinoensisDodd, 2013, Frogs U.S. and Canada, 1: 416–421, provided an account that summarized the relevant literature. Barrow, Ralicki, Emme, and Lemmon, 2014, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 75: 78–90, demonstrated analytical paraphyly with respect to Pseudacris illinoensis, but suggested that this was due to incomplete lineage sorting. Elliot, Gerhardt, and Davidson, 2009, Frogs and Toads of N. Am.: 48–51, provided an account (in the sense of including Pseudacris illinoensis), photos, and advertisement call. Altig and McDiarmid, 2015, Handb. Larval Amph. US and Canada: 209–210, provided an account of larval morphology and biology.
