The Lago de las Minas frog, Lithobates chichicuahutla, is a species of frog in the Ranidae family. It is endemic to the Las Minas Lake (Lago de las Minas) in Puebla, Mexico.[2] Its natural habitat is vegetation surrounding the lake. It is threatened by deterioration in the quality of habitat surrounding the lake as well as the decline in lake surface level caused by groundwater extraction.[1]
