A ranid frog of the genus Hylarana from eastern Sumatra is sufficiently divergent morphologically from other congeners as to be recognized as a distinct species. In addition, the frog is also much divergent from the other members of the species group genetically, we hereby describe it as a new species, H. rawa. It is closest to H. baramica, H. laterimaculata, and H. glandulosa among members of Hylarana.
