Boana curupi, the yellow-spotted tree frog, fasciated frog or spotted tree frog, is a frog endemic to Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina. Scientists have seen it between 300 and 700 m above sea level.[2][3]

The adult male frog measures 29.0 to 43.4 mm in snout-vent length, and the adult female frog 41.3 to 47.0 mm. This frog has two sets of five vomerine teeth.[3]

This frog is dark coffee-brown in color with darker patches and a white stripe on its lip. It is lighter at the throat. Its bones are green and the iris of its eye is gold.[3]

The frog's name comes from "Curupi," also called "Curipira" or "Kurupira," a creature from folklore that protects the forest and the living things in it.[3]
