Incilius bocourti (formerly Bufo bocourti; common name Bocourt's toad) is a species of toad in the family Bufonidae. It is found in southwestern Guatemala and in Chiapas in the adjacent Mexico.[1][2] Its phylogenetic position is uncertain; it might not to belong to this genus, being the sister taxon of Anaxyrus instead.[3] It is named after Marie Firmin Bocourt, a French zoologist and artist.[4]

Its natural habitats are coniferous highlands, but it can also occur heavily disturbed, treeless areas. Breeding takes place in temporary ponds. There are no major threats to it.[1]
