A new species of Leptodactylus is described from cloud forest habitats in Honduras. This new species may be distinguished from other members of the genus Leptodactylus by the combination of the presence of two thumb spines and strongly hypertrophied forelimbs in adult males, a dark interorbital blotch, postorbital bar, and lateral body stripe, a smooth dorsum, and the absence of chest spines, dorsolateral folds, and lateral toe fringes. It occurs at the highest known elevation of any member of the genus.
