Osteocephalus cabrerai is a species of frog in the family Hylidae. It is found in the Amazon Basin in Brazil (Manaus), northeastern Peru, Ecuador (Sucumbíos and Orellana Provinces), Colombia (Amazonas, Caquetá, and Vaupés Departments[4]), Guyana, and French Guiana, possibly wider.[3] Some earlier records refer to Osteocephalus buckleyi.[3]


The specific name cabrerai honours Mr. Isodore Cabrera,[2] a Colombian naturalist and collector.[5]

Habitat and conservation[edit]

Its natural habitats are lowland tropical rainforests. Some individuals specimens have been spotted on low vegetation in primary forest or the forest edge at night. It is an uncommon species that is locally threatened by habitat loss.[1]
