Abstract: We describe a new species of Callulops from the vicinity of Crater
Mountain Biological Station in south-central Papua New Guinea. The species
may be distinguished from its congeners by its unique dorsal color pattern,
moderately expanded digital disks bearing circummarginal grooves, smooth
skin, relatively long legs, and relatively short snout. The species is currently
known only from the type locality, and its nearest relatives remain obscure.
