The Sierra Miahuatlan spikethumb tree frog[2] (Sarcohyla miahuatlanensis) is a frog that lives in Mexico. Scientists have only seen it in one place: a pine-oak forest in the Sierra de Miahuatlán, Oaxaca.[1][3]

The scientists who wrote the first paper about the frog say it is similar to the southern Sierra Madre tree frog in size, but it is a different color.[4]
