A new member of the Eleutherodactylus unistrigatus group is described from the Rio Mayo drainage in the upper Amazon Basin, Departamento San Martin, Perú. This species possesses a unique pattern of yellow spots in the groin and a pair of glandular dorsolateral ridges. It resembles five other upper Amazonian congeners (E. carvalhoi, E. croceoinguinis, E. imitatrix, E. toftae, E. variabilis) that also have yellow or orange flash colors in the groin region. These frogs can be distinguished by a combination of features, including condition of tympanum and vocal apparatus, presence of digital lateral fringes, and details of groin color and pattern. A multivariate analysis of three basic measurements resulted in clear differentiation of the new species, with the morphometric relationship of the other five remaining unresolved.
