New Upland Stream Frogs of the Eleutherodactylus rugulosus Group (Amphibia: Anura: Leptodactylidae) from Honduras
A new species of the Eleutherodactylus rugulosus group is described from each of two montane sites in the Cordillera de Nombre de Dios and the Cordillera de Celaque of northcentral and southwestern Honduras, respectively. The northern form differs from the wide-ranging E. rugulosus in having vocal slits and nuptial pads in adult males (both absent in the latter) and in coloration. The Celaque species has a vocal slit but lacks nuptial pads in the only known adult male and is further distinguished from E. rugulosus and the other new form in hand morphology.
