The Parjacti tree frog (Hyloscirtus chlorosteus) is a frog. It lives in Bolivia. Scientists have seen it in exactly one place, 2044 meters above sea level.[2][1][3]

One male frog was about 39.7 mm long from nose to rear end. Scientists found it sitting on a doorknob.

This frog has brown skin and green bones. The belly are chin are whitish to gold in color, and shiny. There is some pink color toward the rear end. This frog has no chin gland. It has disks on its toes for climbing.[4]
