During fieldwork in eastern Panamain in 2011 and 2012 researchers identified four new species of frogs in the genus Diasporus. The genus was first described in 2008. They are found in Central and northern South America. They are sometimes referred to as dink frogs in reference to the “tink” sound that males make during the mating season.
