Dendropsophus nekronastes is a poorly known species of the D. leucophyllatus group endemic to the Atlantic Forest of southern Bahia, Brazil. We describe the external morphology of the tadpole of D. nekronastes and compare it with other known tadpoles of the D. leucophyllatus group. The tadpole of D. nekronastes generally resembles most species of the D. leucophyllatus group; however, a dark longitudinal stripe bordered by a yellow stripe on the dorsum differentiates it from all previously described tadpoles of species in the D. leucophyllatus group.
