Choerophryne is a genus of microhylids endemic to New Guinea. These frogs are small, with the body length measured from snout to vent between 11–23 mm.

The distinction between Choerophryne and closely related genus Albericus is based solely on the orientation of the alary processes of the premaxillae, giving the former its distinctive snout. In 2013 a new Choerophryne species was described with an orientation intermediate between the two genera, suggesting Albericus is likely a junior synonym of Choerophryne.
