New species are being discovered every day, all around the world. Some, like the tiny frog above, are hidden among debris on the forest floor, while others are hiding in plain sight on museum shelves, just waiting to be described by researchers. Since there are so many species being discovered, it’s only natural that someone try and determine which among them are the best species. It’s in that spirit that we bring you the top ten new species discovered in the last year, as appointed by an international group of taxonomists and presented by the International Institute for Species Exploration at Arizona State University.
