HANGZHOU, Jan. 19 (Xinhua) -- A new record of frog species was found in the city of Lishui, east China's Zhejiang Province, the municipal bureau of ecology and environment said on Tuesday.

The species was named as Megophrys baishanzuensis, since it was discovered in the Baishanzu National Park in June last year during the biodiversity investigation of Lishui.

The result has been published in a recent research article in the journal ZooKeys.
