Holotype. BPBM 16433 View Materials (field tag FK 6157), adult female, collected by D. Salepuna on E slope Oya Tabu, 9.4591333, 150.7808666, 1400 m, Fergusson Island , Milne Bay Province, Papua New Guinea, 28 August 2002. GoogleMaps  

Diagnosis. A minute microhylid (female SV = 11.3 mm) with a relatively short leg (TL/SV = 0.40, Fig. 5A View Figure 5 ), short snout (EN/SV = 0.062, EN/IN = 0.64, Fig. 5C View Figure 5 ), medium-sized eye (EY/SV = 0.13, EY/SN = 1.07, Fig. 5C View Figure 5 ), dorsal pattern of a pair of obscure dark-brown chevrons on a lighter-brown ground ( Fig. 5A View Figure 5 ), and ventral pattern of scattered light-gray spots on a dark-brown ground ( Fig. 5B View Figure 5 ).

Comparisons with other species. The new species differs from Paedophryne kathismaphlox   in its larger size (females to 10.9 mm in P. kathismaphlox   ), shorter snout (EN/SV = 0.067 –0.079, EN/IN = 0.78–0.80 in P. kathismaphlox   ), slightly larger eye
