Proceratophrys melanopogon is always observed at high altitudes, having never been diagnosed in altered areas. The advertisement call of this species is described from Serra do Brigadeiro, state of Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil. The call consists of a multipulsed (12–41 pulses) note with a mean duration of 0.39 s, emitted sporadically, and a dominant frequency around 1179 Hz. By comparing the call of P. melanopogon with other species of the genus it is possible to establish similarities and differences among the analyzed parameters.
