A new species of Bufo tentatively assigned to the Bufo veraguensis group is described from forests near Paucartambo de Pasco, Peru, at elevations of 2600–3000 m in the Cordillera Oriental of central Peru. The new species differs from all known bufonids by having numerous large glands with many keratinous tips on the dorsum, large glands on the tibia and forearm, and two large dorsal glands lying between the parotoids. The new species is most similar to Bufo chavin. Both species are compared to each other and B. veraguensis with respect to external characters and skull osteology. The tadpole and call of the new species remain unknown.
