Abstract

In the course of a series of herpetological surveys in Madagascar a new arboreal frog belongin to the “green Boophisi group” (family raidae, subfamily Rhacophorinae) has been discovered. Boophis anjanaharibeensis n. sp. was found in the mid-altitude rainforest of the Anjanaharibe-Sud Special Reserve, in northeastern Madagascar. It is similar ins ome characters to B. luteusi and to B. elenae, from which it differs in the greater development of the head and eyes and in the coloration, dorsally dark green with scattered light spots. The eyes are not red, as in B. l. luteus, but golden with a narrow outer brownish area. The belly is whitish with bluish shadings, as well as digital expansions.
