Researchers in India have found a dozen new frog species belonging to the night frog group, named for their nocturnal habits, and rediscovered three species, one of which had not been seen in nearly a century. The findings appeared in the journal Zootaxa on Sept. 15.

Night frogs are a group endemic to India and require either fast moving rivers or moist forest floor for breeding.

Pretty neat-o.

I'd upload some images but that section of ATS is currently disabled. Nonetheless, they look awesome, and made me noticed that frogs (not sure if all) have diamond shaped pupils.

here's another link where you can view the pictures.
