Pristimantis citriogaster, sometimes known as the throated robber frog, is a species of frog in the family Craugastoridae. It is known from northern Peru near Tarapoto (the type locality) and southeastern Ecuador.[2] Its natural habitats are premontane rainforest and cloud forest. Adults are nocturnal and typically occur on rocks in and along cascading streams.[1] Its altitudinal range is 600–1,094 m (1,969–3,589 ft) asl.[3]

Pristimantis citriogaster is threatened by habitat loss.[1]

Description[edit]

Pristimantis citriogaster has a characteristic bright yellow belly (as alluded to in its name). Skin on dorsum is shagreen without tubercles. Tympanum is distinct.[3]
