Craugastor lineatus, also known as the Montane robber frog, is a critically endangered frog in the family Craugastoridae. It is native to Guatemala and southern Mexico (Oaxaca and Chiapas).[1][2] It lives in lower montane evergreen forests. This is a critically endangered species which experiences a rapid population decline, probably as a result of the effects of chytridiomycosis.[1]
