Abstract: 

A new species of Phyllopezus is described from the dry forest of the upper Marañon basin
(Department of Amazonas, Peru), in the northern portion of the Cordillera Central at an elevation of
900-1000 m a.s.l.. The new species differs from all described species by its large size, the absence of
enlarged tubercles on head, limbs and tail, and only indistinct rows of small and flat tubercles on the
dorsum.
