Litoria is a large genus of tree frogs native to Australia, the Bismarck Archipelago, the Solomon Islands, New Guinea, the Lesser Sunda Islands, and the Moluccan Islands.

The newfound species, named Litoria mira, is endemic to New Guinea and widespread in lowland swampy rainforest.

“Once we saw the new species, we started calling it a chocolate frog and the name stuck,” said Dr. Paul Oliver, a researcher at Queensland Museum and Griffith University.

“The closest known relative of Litoria mira is the Australian green tree frog (Litoria caerulea).”

“The two species look similar except one is usually green, while the new species usually has a lovely chocolate coloring.”
