Abstract

A new species of frog of the Craugastor alfredi group is described from western Honduras. The new species is the first member of the C. alfredi group reported from Honduras. It inhabits the Montane Subtropical (Premontane) Wet Forest of Montaña del Cerro Azul, Sierra del Espíritu Santo. It differs from all other species in the group by the combination of having the fifth toe pad wider than the second, few melanophores on the abdominal area of the venter, a small number of vomerine teeth (0–8), and a rounded proximal subarticular tubercle on Toe V about one-half the size of the distal subarticular tubercle.
