Tarauaca Snouted Treefrog (Scarthyla goinorum)
While waiting for the group of evening hikers to gather, I wandered around the edges of the clearing at Madre Selva, looking for frogs on the bushes. I found several species that I had seen on previous trips before spotting this one. I recognized it as something I hadn't seen before, but only got this one handheld poorly focused photo before it hopped away into the foliage.
