Dendropsophus is a genus of frogs in the Hylidae family. They are distributed in Central and South America, from southern Mexico to northern Argentina and Uruguay. They are sometimes known under the common name Fitzinger neotropical treefrogs or yellow treefrogs[1]

This genus was resurrected in 2005 following a major revision of the Hylidae family.[2] The species believed to have 30 chromosomes, previously placed in the Hyla genus, were later moved to this genus.[1]


95 species are currently assigned to this genus.[1]
