Peru: 3 new frog species identified in Pui Pui Protected Forest

Rudolf von May, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Michigan and one of the authors of a paper describing the three new species that was published in the journal Zootaxa late last month, said in a statement that there are many more species discoveries to be made in the region — and teased the fact that he and his colleagues might soon be announcing further new finds of their own, including frogs and lizards.
