Abstract

Two new species of Hyalinobatrachium are described from eastern Honduras. The first is distinguished from all other Mexican and Central American species of the genus, except for H. chirripoi, by having extensive webbing between fingers II-III and a clear parietal pericardium. This taxon is most easily distinguished from H. chirripoi by having smooth to weakly granular dorsal surfaces, a faintly indicated tympanum, a short loreal region, non-protuberant eyes, and numerous brown flecks on the dorsal surfaces. The second new species is distinguished from all other Mexican and Central American species of the genus by the combination of having a clear parietal pericardium, vestigial webbing between fingers II-III, a faintly indicated tympanum, and by lacking brown flecks on the dorsal surfaces in alcohol preserved specimens. /// Se describe dos especies nuevas de Hyalinobatrachium del este de Honduras. Se distingue la primera de todas las otras especies del género de Centroamérica, menos H. chirripoi, por la posesión de membranas extensivas entre los dedos del mano II-III y un pericardio parietal claro. Este taxa es distinguido mas facílmente de H. chirripoi por la posesión de superficies dorsales lisas a débilmente granular, un tímpano escondido, un región loreal corta, ojos no abultados y puntos de color pardo numerosos en las superficies dorsales. Se distingue la segunda especie nueva de todas las otras especies del género de Centroamérica por la combinación de poseer un pericardio parietal claro, membranas rudimentarios entre los dedos del mano II-III, un tímpano escondido y por no poseer puntos de color pardo en las superficies dorsales en los especímenes preservados.
