This remarkable looking toad may be a new species. It was discovered in mid-2006 by two Surinamese scientists, Paul Ouboter and Jan Mol. Suriname was previously known as Dutch Guyana, and some of the population still has Dutch roots. This genus contains a number of neotropical species, many of which are listed on the international Red List of Threatened Species due to population declines.
