Sonali Garg, a postgraduate student of Delhi University found a new species after five years of extensive study in the Western Ghats – the hotspot of biodiversity in southern India. This species belongs to the group of Indian frogs or the genus Fejervarya.

The new findings will have a significant impact on the state of conservation of these frogs.

“We need to worry about the existence of these recently discovered frogs and to conduct further studies to assess their conservation status,” said Professor S. D. Biju, who led the study students.

Sonali said that “it was necessary to conduct more extensive research to define and describe the frogs of the Western Delegates”.

“These frogs already face the threat of extinction from various human activities,” she added.

Over the past decade in the Western Ghats has identified a number of new species of frogs, making the area one of the leading hotspots for biodiversity in the world.

New species of frogs that dig burrows in the sand, found in 2016. In the same year, scientists found unusual tree frog that was considered extinct for more than a century ago.
