Craugastor matudai, Matuda's robber frog, Matuda's stream frog
Craugastor matudai (common names: Matuda's robber frog, Matuda's stream frog) is a species of frog in the family Craugastoridae. It is found in the lower montane zone at elevations of 1,500–2,000 m (4,900–6,600 ft) above sea level on the Pacific versant of Mexico and Guatemala, from Cerro Ovando in southwestern Chiapas (Mexico) to Fraternidad, a village in Esquipulas Palo Gordo, central Guatemala. It is named after Eizi Matuda, Japanese–Mexican botanist who hosted Hobart Muir Smith and his wife Rozella B. Smith, the collectors of the type series from Cerro Ovando.

NoNot a migrant
Animals that do not make seasonal movements and stay in their native home ranges all year round are called not migrants or residents.
Males measure 27–28 mm (1.1–1.1 in) and females 37–40 mm (1.5–1.6 in) in snout–vent length. The body is heavily rugose with tiny pearly-topped tubercles. The canthus rostralis is sharp with slightly raised edges. The diameter of the tympanum relative to the eye is much larger in males (>4/5) than in females (little more than 1/2). Males lack vocal sac.
