SANTA FE WEEPING FROG Physalaemus santafecinus
Documented in Paraguay for the first time in 2009, this little Physalaemus is currently known only from the rarely-explored department of Đeembuc˙. It closely resembles the similar Marbled Weeping Frog, but is smaller than that species and has an allopatric distribution. Unlike many species of Physalaemus, the call is a "bark" rather than a "weep."
