Pristimantis gentryi is a species of frog in the family Craugastoridae. It is endemic to central Ecuador where it is found in a small area west of the Páramo de Apagua, Cotopaxi Province.[2] Its natural habitats are high-altitude (2,850–3,380 m (9,350–11,090 ft) asl) cloud forests, presumably also high-altitude bush lands and grasslands. It is threatened by habitat loss caused by deforestation for agricultural development and human settlement.[1]
