An Anthropogenic Shrub Frog (Pseudophilautus hoipolloi) I love this name. In the paper that described this species, the etymology is given as follows: "The species name is a reference to the Greek for ‘the many’ (applied here as a noun in apposition), now slang for ‘the common people’ — an allusion to the exclusively synanthropic distribution of this species."
