We describe two new species of small microhylid frogs in the genus Choerophryne from the northern slopes of Papua New Guinea's central cordillera. Choerophryne epirrhina sp. nov. can be distinguished from congeners by the combination of moderately small size (SUL 14.9-15.0 mm), distinctly elongated snout (OHG/SUL 0.09-0.10), first finger without expanded disk, and advertisement call consisting of 3-4 distinctly pulsed notes repeated in long sequences. Choerophryne grylloides sp. nov. can be…

Abstract I describe a new species of small microhylid frog from the southern versant of New Guinea that is characterized by its long and narrow proboscis, relatively large size and long legs, narrow
Three new species of the microhylid frog genus Choerophryne (Amphibia, Anura, Microhylidae) from Papua New Guinea
TLDR
Three new species of the microhylid frog genus Choerophryne are described from the mountains and foothills of southern and northeastern Papua New Guinea, where all are arboreal and call from elevated perch sites between ~1 and 10 m above the forest floor.
Mountain colonisation, miniaturisation and ecological evolution in a radiation of direct-developing New Guinea Frogs (Choerophryne, Microhylidae)
TLDR
The correlation between extreme miniaturisation and terrestrial habits reflects a general trend in frogs, suggesting that ecological or physiological constraints limit niche usage by miniaturised frogs, even in extremely wet environments such as tropical mountains.
