Diagnosis. Aplastodiscus lutzorum sp. n. belongs to the Aplastodiscus perviridis Group and thus bears bicolored irises, lacks webbing between toes I and II, has reduced webbing among the remaining toes, and lacks peri-cloacal ornamentation. The new species is diagnosed by its small SVL for the Aplastodiscus perviridis Group (30 - 36 mm) and by the advertisement call 2.5 times longer.
Etymology. The new species is named after the Brazilian scientists Adolfo and Bertha Lutz, who were pioneers in discovering and studying Aplastodiscus and some species of Hyla now included in the genus Aplastodiscus.
