Tlalocohyla is a genus of frogs in the family Hylidae.[2][3] They are called rain treefrogs and Middle American yellow-bellied treefrogs. They live in Middle America between Mexico and Costa Rica.[2] Scientists made this genus in 2005 after they looked at the Hylidae again. Before 2005, the four species in this genus were in the genus Hyla.[1]
