Abstract

A new species of Petracola is described from Rio Abiseo National Park in northeastern Peru, where it inhabits grasslands above montane forest at 3,230 m asl. The new species is diagnosed by a unique combination of morphometric, scalation, and color pattern characteristics, increasing the number of described Petracola species to five.
