I describe a new species of Rhadinaea of the godmani species group from a cloud forest locality in the Sierra de Omoa of northwestern Honduras. The red ventral and subcaudal surfaces, the presence of 21-21-21 dorsal scale rows, bold vertebral and lateral stripes with poorly defined supplemental stripes will distinguish it from all other species in the group. The type locality of the species lies in an area that contains an unusually high number of Honduran endemic species of reptiles and amphibians.
