Abstract

A new species of Bolitoglossa is described from the Cordillera Central of central Panamá. This is a large black species, which is likely related to the B. (Eladinea) schizodactyla group of Costa Rica and Panamá. The new species, known from a single specimen, differs from other large black Bolitoglossa in having white pigmentation on the lower face and on the ventral portions of the head and chest. It also has more interdigital webbing than most members of the B. (E.) schizodactyla group.
