Eight species were placed within the Agalychnis genus, but a recent major revision of the Hylidae family [1] moved two species to the newly created genus Cruziohyla, leaving six species in this genus:

Blue-sided leaf frog, Agalychnis annae (Duellman, 1963)
Red-eyed tree frog, Agalychnis callidryas (Cope, 1862)
Pink-sided leaf frog, Agalychnis litodryas (Duellman and Trueb, 1967)
Morelet's tree frog, Agalychnis moreletii (Duméril, 1853)
Misfit leaf frog, Agalychnis saltator (Taylor, 1955)
