Abstract

Cophixalus misimae Richards & Oliver, n. sp., is described from low-altitude rain forest on Misima Island, Louisiade Archipelago, Papua New Guinea. It is a small (males 15.5–16.1 mm, females 19.3–19.6 mm) terrestrial species with a visible tympanum, a snout that is distinctly truncate in dorsal view, unwebbed toes, a dark brown lateral stripe, and a call consisting of a train of high-pitched pulses. It is the third species of Cophixalus known from the Louisiade Archipelago and is currently known only from Misima Island.
