Amazophrynella minuta — Orange-bellied Leaf Toad
Some other names for this species:
Tiny Tree Toad
This species was formerly classified as Dendrophryniscus minutus.
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.
