Scientists have recently described a new species of glass frog found in the Caribbean foothills of Costa Rica.  Named for lead author Brian Kubicki’s mother, Janet Diane Kubicki, Diane’s Bare-hearted Glassfrog (Hyalinobatrachium dianae) is Costa Rica’s fourteenth species of glass frog.  This is the first time a new species of glass frog has been discovered since 1973.  While many are hyped about this species’ resemblance to Kermit the Frog, we are even more excited that such a remarkable creature exists in Costa Rica’s rainforests!
