The Garman New Guinea tree frog (Litoria jeudii) is a species of frog in the Hylidae family. It is endemic to Papua New Guinea, and the type is the only known specimen.[1]

The specific epithet honours the Dutch zoologist Theodoor Gerard van Lidth de Jeude. The vernacular name is almost certainly a meaningless error, for "German New Guinea tree frog".[2]
