Bromeliohyla, sometimes known as the bromeliad treefrogs, is a genus of frogs in the family Hylidae.[2][3] This genus was erected in 2005 following a major revision of the Hylidae. The original two species in this genus were previously placed in the genus Hyla.[1] They are found in tropical southern Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, and northern Honduras.[2]

The genus contains three species:[2][3]
