Rhabdias collaris n. sp. (Rhabditoidea: Rhabdiasidae) is described from Leptopelis vermiculatus (Boulenger, 1909) (Hyperoliidae: Leptopelinae) (type host) and Hyperolius sp. (Hyperoliinae) of Amani, Tanzania. This species differs from all others in the genus in possessing a cephalic end which is markedly thickened by four peripheral muscle bundles. The muscular mass extends anteriorly forming a concave depression at the base of which the mouth is located.
