Eleutherodactylus limbatus

The yellow-striped pygmy eleuth, also known as the yellow-striped dwarf frog, is a species of frog in the family Eleutherodactylidae from closed mesic and xeric forests in Cuba. The yellow-striped pygmy eleuth is relatively brightly marked in orange-yellow and among the smallest frogs in the world, up to 1.18 cm in snout–to–vent length with males marginally smaller than females. It is part of a closely related Cuban group that contains five additional described species and at least one undescribed species; most of which are of tiny size, relatively brightly colored and possibly aposematic . Among these, the yellow-striped pygmy eleuth is unique in being quite widespread in Cuba, whereas the others all have very small ranges in the eastern part of the island.
