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

For a while, scientists decided not to use this genus. In 2005, they started using it again after a large revision of the family Hylidae.[2] Some of the frogs that had been in Hyla were moved to Dendropsophus if they had 30 chromosomes.[1]
