We describe three new species of the microhylid frog genus Choerophryne from the mountains
and foothills of southern and northeastern Papua New Guinea. All three species lack
elongated snouts and all are arboreal calling from elevated perch sites between ~1
and 10 m above the forest floor. Advertisement calls and habitat preferences are described
for each species. Descriptions of these three frogs brings the total number of Choerophryne
recognized to 34 but numerous additional species undoubtedly remain to be discovered
in poorly-surveyed mountainous regions of New Guinea.
