The reticulated tree frog (Dendropsophus reticulatus) is a frog that lives in Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia. Scientists have seen this frog between 40 and 1037 meters above sea level.

The adult male frog is 2.0 to 2.9 cm long and the adult female frog is 2.8 to 4.0 cm long. The males sing for females near temporary or permanent bodies of water. The females lay eggs all year. They lay eggs on the tops of leaves about 30 cm over the water. When the tadpoles hatch, they fall into the water.
