Elachistocleis skotogaster spec. nov. is described from the Andean Yungas of Argentina. It is unique in the genus in having belly and legs densely spotted with brown, an uniformly dark brown dorsal mottled with black, absence of a light vertebral strip, a fold behind the mouth but not a postcommisural gland. Its natural history and advertisement call are briefly noted. Elachistocleis ovalis and E. bicolor are considered different species, and Buenos Aires, Argentina, is established as type locality for the latter one.
