We describe the external morphology and oral cavity of the tadpoles of Bokermannohyla caramaschii and B. diamantinarespectively from the states of Espírito Santo and Bahia, Brazil. Larvae of both species are distinguished from each otherby external characters such as body shape, labial tooth-row formula, number of marginal papillae, coloration and internaloral anatomy features. Some of the character states of the tadpoles of B. caramaschii and B. diamantina that are sharedwith all other described tadpoles of the Bokermannohyla circumdata group, such as the absence/reduction of small flapswith accessory labial teeth laterally in the oral disc, and the absence/reduction of submarginal papillae, may represent morphologicalsynapomorphies of this species group, or at least of some internal clade. The general pattern of brownish colorationwith longitudinal stripes on the caudal muscle is also common to most species of the group. We did not findcharacter states of the oral cavity that are exclusively shared by species of the B. circumdata group, or by other groups ofBokermannohyla.
