Abstract

We describe a new species of Pristimantis in the subgenus Hypodictyon ridens Species Series from the type locality in Parque Nacional General de División Omar Torrijos Herrera on the Cordillera Central in central Panama. This species is similar to Pristimantis caryophyllaceus but can be differentiated from that form by snout–vent length (female Pristimantis educatoris ∼ 27% larger than P. caryophyllaceus), round, globular, and projecting subarticular tubercles on all digits (not projecting in P. caryophyllaceus); finger disk covers even, round, disk pads ovoid, toe disk covers expanded and palmate, and toe pads even and broadened (finger and toe disk covers and pads rounded in P. caryophyllaceus); outer metatarsal tubercle large, elongate, and projecting (obscure and small in P. caryophyllaceus). We also report and describe female parental care of eggs.
