Abstract

In an account of frogs in the Australian Museum collected in Central New Guinea, two new Hylid species (Nyctimystes disrupta and N. foricula from the Schrader Mountains), and one new Ranid (Rana jimiensis from the Jimi River Valley) are described. Variations within the paratype series are reported, and the relationships of the species are discussed. Series or individual examples of four additional species of the genus Nyctimystes, four Hyla, three Rana, and one Cophixalus are represented, and notes on their morphology, ecology, parasites, distribution and vernacular nomenclature are included. The representation of the family Microhylidae by a solitary specimen is discussed, and assumed to indicate selective rather than representative sampling of the herpetofauna by the collectors.
