Bufo cristatus Wiegmann, 1833
The large-crested toad (Incilius cristatus, formerly Bufo cristatus) is a critically endangered species of true toad that is endemic to cloud forests in the central Sierra Madre Oriental in Puebla and Veracruz, Mexico. Once feared extinct, it has recently been rediscovered at two sites in Puebla where it is uncommon. The reasons for its decline are habitat loss and pollution, and there are no recent records from Veracruz.
