A new species of the Hypsiboas pulchellus group is described from the Mantiqueira range, in the Munic´ıpio de Rio Preto, State ofMinas Gerais, Brazil. We describe adults, tadpoles, and the advertisement call. The new species is morphologically similar to H. freicanecae, aspecies known from a few localities in the states of Alagoas and Pernambuco, northeastern Brazil, ~1640 km north. Adults differ from H.freicanecae in having a slender body, smaller male size, larger calcar, and hidden surfaces of thighs and feet orange in life. Tadpoles have a ventraloral disc, with labial tooth row formula 2(2)/3?4(1), with one to three narrow posterior gaps on the marginal papillae located on the oral discemarginations. The advertisement call is composed of two nonpulsed notes with dominant frequency at the second harmonic. The species isknown only from its type locality, in an unprotected area.
