Abstract

Gastrotheca piperata is described from Andean cloud forest in Bolivia. The new species is similar to Gastrotheca marsupiata but differs in coloration and advertisement call. Upon release from the maternal brood pouch, the tadpoles are in Gosner developmental stages 36 or 37, in contrast to the less developed (stages 30 or 31) tadpoles released by G. marsupiata, a species that inhabits higher and drier nonforested areas.
