Hylomantis is a genus of tree frogs, the rough leaf frogs. Until 2005, only two species were placed in this genus, but following a major revision of the Hylidae family [1], six species previously placed in Phyllomedusa were moved here. However, a 2010 revision [2] suggested that the genus was paraphyletic, removing four of those species (Agalychnis aspera, A. granulosa, A. hulli, and A. lemur. However, the database AmphibiaWeb still recognizes aspera and granulosa as belonging in the genus Hylomantis.
