Syncope bassleri — Bassler’s Sheep Frog
Also known as:
Bassler’s Humming Frog
This species was included in the genus Chiasmocleis until a major revision of the Microhylidae family by de Sá et al in 2012.
This is a very small frog; a full-sized adult like this one is still only about an inch long. Like all the other "sheep frogs" (a.k.a. "narrow-mouthed toads"), they are weird-looking little wedge-headed things.
