Abstract

A new species of Hyla is described from Cerro Jaua, 1600 m, Bolívar State, Venezuela. The external appearance of the new species closely resembles Hyla benitezi and Hyla lemai but differs from these species in having cream-colored digits and webbing (in live specimens), a golden iris, less foot webbing, no quadratojugal, and a characteristic advertisement call that consists of a rhythmically repeated note with a dominant frequency between 3260 and 3450 Hz.
