Austrochaperina is a genus of microhylid frogs found on New Guinea, New Britain and Australia.[1]

Taxonomy

The genus was removed from the synonymy of Sphenophryne by Richard Zweifel in 2000. However, as currently defined, it might not be monophyletic, with two monophyletic units of Austrochaperina more closely related to parts of Copiula than with each other.[1]

Description

Austrochaperina are rather generalized frogs in their morphology and appear mostly to inhabit leaf litter. They reach maximum sizes between 20 and 50 mm (0.79 and 1.97 in) snout–vent length. Finger and toe tips are flattened and disc-like. Most species lack toe webbing.[2]

Species

There are at present 24 species in this genus:[1]

The AmphibiaWeb[3] includes a few additional species that Peloso and colleagues moved to Copiula in 2016.[4]
