Guibemantis is a frog genus in the mantellid subfamily Mantellinae. This genus is restricted to Madagascar. At present it contains 16 species divided into two subgenera.[1]

The genus Guibemantis was erected as a subgenus of Mantidactylus by Dubois in 1992 with the type species Guibemantis depressiceps.[2] It was elevated to genus-level in 2006.[3]

In 1994, the subgenus Pandanusicola was erected for a group of species that are strongly associated with Pandanus screw-palms.[4] It was originally proposed as an additional subgenus of Mantidactylus, but when Guibemantis was elevated to genus-level in 2006, Pandanusicola was made a subgenus of it.[3]

This genus is divided into two subgenera:
