New Frogs Discovered

From the Chicago Tribune.

A new species of treefrog was discovered during an expedition to Indonesia in December 2005 by Conservation International. Scientists discovered a "Lost World" in an isolated Indonesian jungle, identifying dozens of new species of frogs, butterflies and plants, as well as large mammals hunted to near extinction elsewhere.

Here is another one: a microhylid frog less than a half inch long!
