A new species of Scinax is described from open formations of the coastal plains (Restingas) within the Tropical Atlantic Domain in northeastern Brazil. The new species most resembles S. auratus (Wied-Neuwied) and S. juncae Nunes and Pombal, and is diagnosed by the dorsal pattern of dorsolateral white stripes in dark-brown background, interocular white transversal stripe, and small scattered white blotches; snout rounded in dorsal view and profile; dorsal skin smooth; vocal sac smooth; presence of a few tubercles in a longitudinal way from the internal metatarsal tubercle to the heel; advertisement call with 7–8 notes; call dominant frequency 1.38 kHz. This new species can be easily distinguished from S. auratus and S. juncae by the different dorsal pattern, morphological traits, and advertisement call.
