Pristimantis euphronides is a species of Craugastoridae frog that is endemic to Grenada, an island in the Caribbean Lesser Antilles.[2] It is threatened by habitat loss.[1]

Description[edit]

It has a dark brown dorsal surface, and a cream-colored ventral surface, with orange tinting on the rear of its thighs. Its lips are mottled, and its upper iris is bronze. A dark supra-tympanic stripe runs from the corner of its eye to its armpit.

Males call around dusk, usually from high perches. Females are usually seen near the ground.

Distribution and habitat[edit]

Its distribution is limited to central and southeast Grenada, at elevations between 300 and 840 m (980 and 2,760 ft) asl. Its natural habitats are rainforests as well as forest edge and montane meadows surrounded by agriculture.[1]
