Abstract
We describe a new species of semiarboreal frog in the genus Gephyromantis from midelevation rain forests of the Marojejy Massif in northeastern Madagascar, which, according to previously published molecular data, forms a clade with Gephyromantis ambohitra, Gephyromantis asper, and Gephyromantis spinifer. The new species is morphologically most similar to G. ambohitra but differs by its advertisement call and a high genetic distance in mitochondrial DNA. Considering intensive recent logging activity in Marojejy National Park, we propose an IUCN status of Vulnerable for this new species.
