Pristimantis divnae is a nocturnal, semi-arboreal species found in lowland forests of southern Peru in the departments of Cusco, Madre de Dios and Puno. Here, we present a 382 km geographical range extension and the first record at 980 m elevation, increasing the known vertical distribution by 678 m. This is also the first record of this species from premontane forest, suggesting that habitat requirements of P. divnae are broader than originally anticipated.
