Dendropsophus reichlei is a frog that lives in Bolivia, Peru and Brazil.[1][2]

The adult male frog is 17.7–19.0 mm long from nose to rear end and one adult female was 21.5 mm long. This frog has smooth skin on its back with only a few small bumps. Its skin is light brown to red-brown to purple-brown in color. It has many small spots and marks. The area around its ear is dark in color. There are one or two small white spots under the eye. The skin where the back legs meet the body can be yellow or orange. The throat and belly are yellow. This frog has some webbed skin on its front feet and more on its back feet.[3]

This frog lives in trees. It lives high in the branches in swamps, flooded places, or forests that do not flood. Many leafy plants, ferns, and palms grow where this frog likes to live.[3]
