Oreophryne sp. frog
A tiny species that is potentially new to science with a sharp chirping call known only from limestone hills at the type locality. It’s from a group of frogs that are common in the very wet rainforests of New Guinea.
In these saturated environments this Oreophryne and its relatives lay their eggs on the ground or in trees where they hatch directly into tiny froglets, bypassing the tadpole stage.
On a RAP survey, at the headwaters of the Strickland River, in the Southern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea.
