Rulyrana susatamai is a species of frog in the family Centrolenidae. It is endemic to the eastern flank of the Cordillera Central, Colombia, in the departments of Antioquia, Caldas, Huila, and Tolima.[1][2][3]

Habitat and conservation[edit]

Its natural habitats are sub-Andean forests and laurel forests where it is found on vegetation along streams at elevations of 400–1,650 m (1,310–5,410 ft) above sea level.[1][3] The eggs are laid on leaves overhanging the stream, to which the tadpoles drop upon hatching.[1]

Rulyrana susatamai is a common species. However, it requires gallery forest and is sensitive to habitat disturbance. It is threatened by habitat loss and fragmentation.[1]
