Dryophytes eximius, commonly known as the mountain tree frog, is a species of frog in the family Hylidae endemic to Mexico.[2] Its natural habitats are mesquite grasslands, scrub forests, and pine-oak forests. It is a widely distributed species that faces no major threats.[1]

Dryophytes eximius is listed as the state amphibian of Arizona.[3] As currently circumscribed, Dryophytes eximius does not occur in Arizona. Dryophytes wrightorum, the Wright's mountain tree frog, which has previously been regarded as a synonym of Dryophytes eximius does occur in Arizona.[4]
