    A frog species that appears to be the world's smallest has been discovered in Papua New Guinea by a US-based team.

    At 7mm (0.27 inches) long, Paedophryne amauensis may be the world's smallest vertebrate - the group that includes mammals, fish, birds and amphibians.

    The researchers also found a slightly larger relative, Paedophryne swiftorum.

    Presenting the new species in PLoS One journal, they suggest the frogs' tiny scale is linked to their habitat, in leaf litter on the forest floor.
