Abstract: A new large, green species of Leptopelis from the Monts de Cristal, north-western Gabon, is described. It is similar to the sympatric L. brevirostris. The most striking character to distinguish these two taxa is the absence of a tympanum in the new species in contrast to the presence of a tympanum in L. brevirostris.
