The Cuban long-nosed toad or Stejneger's Caribbean toad (Peltophryne longinasus) is a species of toad in the family Bufonidae. It is endemic to Cuba and only known from three widely separated populations.[2] Its natural habitats are upland pinewoods and mesic broadleaf forests. It is always found by streams. It is threatened by habitat loss caused by logging, charcoaling, fires, and agricultural expansion.[1]
