Welcome to one of those annoying teaser posts – I’d post something substantive, if only I had the time. But I don’t. The adjacent photo shows Pristimantis charlottevillensis, a strabomantid from Tobago that was named in 1995. Believe it or don’t, strabomantids are sometimes known as squatting prophet frogs. The group was only named in 2008, and was previously included within the hyloid group Brachycephalidae [previously discussed here]. The photo was taken by John C. Murphy and is used with his kind permission. Hey – how do people get those open thread things going?
