Bailey's tree frog (Dendropsophus werneri) is a frog that lives in Brazil. Scientists have seen it as high as 800 meters above sea level.

The adult male frog is 1.8 to 2.0 cm long and the adult female frog is 2.2 to 2.3 cm long. The eyes stick out from the head. The nose is round. This frog has vomerine teeth in its jaw. All four feet are webbed. They have discs on their toes for climbing, but they do not climb very high into the trees.
