A new species of Plectrohyla is described from the Sierra de Miahuatlan
in southern Oaxaca, Mexico. It is known from a single adult female
obtained from pine-oak forest at 2550 m. The new species is similar
to Plectrohyla cembra in size, habitus, and in having a partially
concealed tympanum but differs most notably in aspects of color
pattern, hand morphology, head shape, and palatine features
