Two new species of Andes Frogs (Craugastoridae: Phrynopus) from the Cordillera de Carpish in central Peru. pp. 327-388.

Abstract. We describe two new species of Phrynopus from the Unchog Elfin Forest of the Cordillera de Carpish in the eastern Andes of central Peru, Región Huánuco. Specimens were obtained from the Puna at elevations between 3276 and 3582 m above sea level. One of the new species is described based on a single male which has a pale gray coloration with large tubercles on dorsum and flanks. It is most similar to P. bufoides and P. thompsoni. The second new species is described based on a male and a female. This new species has a grayish-brown coloration with reddish-brown groin, and discontinuous dorsolateral folds. It is most similar to P. dagmarae and P. vestigiatus. There are currently 32 species of Phrynopus, all known from Peru, seven (22%) of which inhabit the Cordillera de Carpish.
Key words. Amphibia, Anura, new species, Puna, singleton species, taxonomy, Unchog forest.
