Abstract

A new species of Physalaemus belonging to the Physalaemus cuvieri species group is described from southern Bahia, Brazil. It inhabits the borders of Atlantic Rain Forest fragments, natural forest clearings, and cacao plantations. The new species is characterized by its medium size, robust body, warty skin, presence of inguinal glands, one pair of dorsal tubercles on the sacral region, and an interorbital black transversal stripe generally covering a pair of tubercles.
