Eleutherodactylus glamyrus is a species of frog in the Eleutherodactylidae family. It is endemic to western Cuba and known from isolated populations in Sierra Maestra, in the Granma and Santiago de Cuba provinces.[2]

Its natural habitats are closed mesic cloud forests at elevations of 800–1,974 m (2,625–6,476 ft) asl. It is an arboreal species, but eggs are laid on the ground. Although a common in suitable habitat, it is declining in abundance. Major threat to is deforestation caused by agriculture, woodcutting, disturbance from tourist activities, and infrastructure development.[1]
