The author describes three new species and three new subspecies of Hyla, found during her work toward a monograph of the species of Hyla which occur in Brazil. The new species are: Hyla adenoderma from Rondonia territory; H. longilinea from the high mountains at Pogos de Caldas, Minas Gerais; and H. egleri from Belem do Para. The last-named is a northern representative of the forms belonging to the group of H. catharinae from the southern and southeastern serras. The new subspecies are: H. duartei caldarum from Pogos de Caldas; H. raddiana joaquini from the highest and most southern part of the state of Santa Catarina; and H. rubra orientalis from the Atlantic coastal area of Brazil.
