A new species of leptodactylid frog, genus Eleutherodactylus, is described from cloud forest of the northeastern versant of the Bolivian Andes. Eleutherodactylus ashkapara sp. nov. seems to be most closely related to E. pluvicanorus from which it is distinguished mainly by larger size, advertisement call, and arboreal habit. Because of many phenetic similarities, I propose that E. ashkapara, E. fraudator, and E. pluvicanorus be recognized as a species group distinct from other groups of South American Eleutherodactylus.
