Eleutherodactylus inoptatus (common name: Diquini robber frog) is a species of frog in the Eleutherodactylidae family endemic to Hispaniola; it is found both in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.[2] With female snout–vent length of about 88 mm (3.5 in), it is the largest eleutherodactylid frog.[3]

Eleutherodactylus inoptatus is a common frog found in mesic hardwood forests. It can also live in coffee and banana plantations as long as there are trees and shade. It is impacted by habitat loss.[1]
