Default New Species: Poison Frog Discovered in Guyana's "Lost World"

Hi All,
Researchers working in a little-studied rainforest have uncovered a minute Poison Frog that seems restricted to a tiny range within a very unique habitat. Labeled a “micro-endemic”, the newly-described frog may be threatened by plans to encourage ecotourism in the area. Its species name, “assimibilis”, means “that may disappear”. The region in which it lives, northern South America’s Guyana Shield, is home to 148 amphibian and 176 reptile species…and herpetologists believe that many more await discovery.
