Default Strange Coloration in Waxy Monkey Tree Frog

Can someone identify this frog please? I was told that it is P. Sauvagii, but I've never seen them with this red coloration on their legs.

I'm thinking that this could be Phyllomedusa hypochondrialis. Thoughts?

Thanks.

Thomas

Juvenile P. sauvagii have flash markings (if I remember correctly) that disappear as the frog ages. I can't remember if P. sauvagii has flash markings on the back of the legs as a juvenile. Just get the frogs from a reputable breeder if your worried your going to get the wrong species.
