A genus of tree frogs found only in the forests of Mexico

Most members are found residing in the leaf litter of rainforests of tropical lowland and montane forests, where there is little standing water. Hence, some members of this genus are also known as leaf frogs.

They mainly prey upon different types of insects and their own larvae. Mites, spiders, and plant lice are common prey. The current population is stable; however, they are constantly threatened by collection for pet trading. Nonetheless, these frogs are not considered threatened in their natural environment. Global warming, deforestation, and climate change remain the biggest threat.
