Abstract

I describe a new species of microhylid frog from Mt. Giluwe in the Central Highlands of New Guinea. The new species is remarkable in being an inhabitant of alpine grasslands; all other members of the genus are solely arboreal or scansorial forest-dwellers. Reflecting this habitat difference, the new species is unique among its congeners in its short legs, small hands, and small digital discs, features that are typical in terrestrial frogs but are atypical within Albericus.
