Abstract

Two new species of the Eleutherodactylus conspicillatus group are described from Peru. Eleutherodactylus skydmainos occurs in the upper Amazonian lowlands of central and southeastern Peru; it is distinguished by relatively small size, an interocular fold, a shagreened dorsum with dorsolateral ridges, presence of a tarsal fold, basal toe webbing, and color pattern features. Eleutherodactylus karcharias is known only from the type locality in the lower cloud forests of the Departamento Amazonas; it is characterized by a unique fin-shaped dorsal tubercle, dorsolateral ridges, areolate venter, and basal toe webbing.
