Pristimantis marahuaka is a species of frog in the family Craugastoridae. It is endemic to the summit of Cerro Marahuaca, a tepui in central Amazonas state, Venezuela.[2] Its natural habitat is tepui shrubland at around 2,450 m (8,040 ft) asl where it is common in the mossy bases of Heliamphora plants.[1]

There are no direct threats to this species, but given its small range (<20 km²), it is considered "Vulnerable" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.[1]
