ABSTRACT
We describe a new species of the Eleutherodactylus discoidalis group from cloud forests of the Apurimac and Kosñipata valleys, southern Peru. The new species differs from other species of the group mainly by having a coarsely shagreen dorsum, long and slender hind legs, very long feet, Finger I equal in length to Finger II and fingertips not expanded. The species also lacks supernumerary tubercles on the feet.
