Ecnomiohyla phantasmagoria is a frog. Scientists have only seen it in one place, in Ecuador. They saw it 500 meters above sea level.[2][3]

The adult male frog is 95.0 to 110.0 mm long from nose to rear end. This frog is dark in color, from brown to almost black. This is one of the largest frogs in Hylidae, and the disks on its toes are very large.[3]

This frog lives high in the trees.[3]

This frog's name comes from the Greek word meaning "marvellous and unusual."[3]
