Abstract

A new species of the Eleutherodactylus unistrigatus group is described from forests near Oxapampa, Peru, at elevations of 2050-2200 m in the Cordillera Oriental in central Peru. The new species differs from all described species by having an extremely long, acuminate snout and a red (white in preservative) longitudinal stripe on the posterior surface of each thigh.
