A new frog of the genus Philautus is described from Wayanad district in the Western Ghats of India. It differs from all its congeners by the combination of webbed fingers, nearly fully webbed toes and a distinct dermal fringe along the outer margin of the fore - and hind limbs. Philautus nerostagona sp. nov. exhibits several characteristics suggesting that it is strongly adapted to life in the upper layers of the rainforest.
