Leiopelma auroraensis, known as the Aurora frog, is an extinct species of frog that was found in New Zealand. Onesubfossil of the Aurora frog has been discovered in the Aurora Cave, Fiordland, New Zealand. It measured about 60 mm from the snout to the vent. It is named after the Aurora Cave for where it was found.[2] The other extinct New Zealand frogs are Markham's frog and Waitomo frog.[3][4] Aurora frog probably was a local form that had evolved from the more widely distributed Markham's frog.[3]
