The treefrog genus Boophis is represented in Madagascar by 50 described species. In this paper we describe two new cryptic species: B. liami sp. nov. and B. solomaso sp. nov. are similar to B. mandraka in morphology and colouration, but are clearly different in bioacoustic and genetic characters. The existence of many sibling species within Boophis shows the importance of detailed studies to clarify the distribution and the ecological requirements of the species in this genus.

Les anoures arboricoles du genre Boophis sont représentés à Madagascar par 50 espèces. Dans cet article nous décrivons deux nouvelles espèces cryptiques : B. liami sp. nov. et B. solomaso sp. nov. ressemblent a B. mandraka par la coloration et la morphologie, mais ce distinguent clairement par la bioacoustique et le caractères génétiques. L'existence de beaucoup de "sibling species" dans le genre Boophis montre l'importance des études détailles pour qu'on puisse clarifier les questions concernant la répartition et les demandes écologiques des espèces de ce genre.
