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