Pristimantis acuminatus is a species of frog in the family Craugastoridae. It is found in the Amazonian Ecuador, northern Peru, and adjacent Colombia and Brazil.[3] It is a lowland Amazonian rainforest species that also occurs on the lower reaches of the Andes. At night these frogs can be found perched on leaves some 10–15 m (33–49 ft) above the ground; during the daytime they may be found in bromeliads or sleeping on the undersides of leaves. It may also occur in cultivated areas. This widespread species is not considered threatened.[1]
