We describe a new species of Albericus from Mt. Shungol in the Herzog Mountains at the north end of the Owen Stanley terrane of Papua New Guinea. The new species differs from all other known species of the genus in its rapid peeping call and in having the tympana hidden in males. It can be further distinguished from particular congeners in a variety of morphometric variables. The new species inhabits lowland hill forest, was moderately common where found, and is only known from the slopes of Mt. Shungol.
