The lanceback tree frog (Scinax curicica) is a frog. It lives in Minas Gerais in Brazil.[3][1][2]

This frog is brown or gray in color. It has a mark between its eyes. It has two stripes down its back. The insides of its back legs are bright yellow.[4]

Scientists used to think this was the same frog as Scinax duartei.[3][4]
