Andrew Gray, Curator of Herpetology at Manchester Museum spent his career studying the Splendid leaf frog. However, when a supposed new species arrived from Central America, he made a shocking discovery. Using the original specimen of the Splendid leaf frog—first collected in 1902—as a comparison, Gray noticed several unique distinctions between the latest arrivals and those he had been studying. These were, in fact, the Splendid leaf frog and the frogs Gray had been studying were the new species.

The splendid leaf frog is Cruziohyla calcarifer, the new frog is the C. sylviae. Great vide, I had it linked on my splendid post, but I guess it only worked if you were a Nat Geo person. Good find on YouTube- awesome short vid.
