Resumen:
In this article, we describe a new species of Scinax from the state of ParanĂ¡, southern Brazil, based on the external morphologyof adults and their advertisement calls. The new species is diagnosed by the size of its males (SVL 27.8?31.6mm); the snout subovoid in the dorsal view and slightly acuminate in profile; the vocal sac subgular and ventrally notreaching the pectoral region; and the advertisement call composed of a single pulsed note with 7?13 pulses, and a durationof 0.16?0.25s. This new species occurs in natural highland grassland formations, in the threatened ecosystem of the AtlanticForest in the state of ParanĂ¡, southern Brazil.
