Cruziohyla calcarifer (Hylidae) from Sarapiquí, Heredia, Costa Rica.
This species was previously within the genus Agalychnis but was moved to the new genus Cruziohyla in 2005.
The Splendid Trrefrog is native to Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama. This species is often considered to be rare, although more likely it is under-recorded, since it is a canopy frog and has a very soft call. Only occasional individuals are seen from time to time.
