We describe a new species of Platymantis from the Weitin River Valley on the southern tip of New Ireland in the southwest Pacific, bringing to seven the number of native frogs known from that island. We also briefly report on the ecology of the four species of Platymantis occurring on New Ireland and comment on the biogeography of the frog fauna.
