A new species of tree frog discovered by Hungarian researcher

The new species, Phyllodytes amadoi, belonging to the genus of tree-frogs (Hylidae), was found in the Atlantic Rainforest in Brazil

A new species of tree frog has been discovered by Dr. Judit Vörös, curator of the Hungarian Natural History Museum.

According to 24.hu, the new species, Phyllodytes amadoi, belonging to the genus of tree frogs (Hylidae), was found in the Atlantic rainforest in Brazil.

The newly discovered frog is an amphibian and is the smallest species within the grouping. It can grow up to just two centimeters in length.

Females lay their eggs in water stored in Bromelia leaves, and tadpoles grow into frogs within the plants. The species is believed to live their lives within just a 150m range of their birthplace.
