Summary:  Carrying itself with a dark mask on its face and a broad shapeless white mark on its chest, a frog had been jumping across the Peruvian cloud forests of the Andes unrecognized by the scientific world. Now, this visibly distinguishable species has been picked up by researchers from its likely only locality, a cloud forest near Cusco in Peru, at 2,350 m elevation.
