Archaeobatrachia are a suborder of Anura containing various frog and toad like organisms. As the name literally suggests - these are the most ancient toads. Many of the species (28 in total) show certain physiological characteristics which are extinct in the modern frog and toad, thus giving rise to this group. They are largely found in Eurasia, New Zealand, Philippines and Borneo, and are characteristically small.
