Amazophrynella amazonicola — no known English name
This species was split from Amazophrynella minuta in 2015.
This long-legged toadlet was no more than a half inch long. Its dark body was hard to spot as it hopped about on the mostly dark forest floor at night. I first thought it was a tiny Rhinella "margaritifera", but its extra-long hops (for such a tiny thing) gave it away as something different.
