The Northern New Guinea tree frog (Nytimystes gramineus) is a tree frog from Papua New Guinea.

This is a canopy-dwelling frog, meaning it lives high in the branches of the trees where the leaves grow. For a while, scientists thought Litoria dux was a different species, but some scientists now think Litoria dux is part of Litoria graminea.
