    Pristimantis shrevei is a species of craugastorid frog that is endemic to Saint Vincent, the West Indies.[3] Its common name is Saint Vincent frog.[4]


    The specific name, shrevei, is in honor of American herpetologist Benjamin Shreve.[2][5]

    Geographic range and habitat

    P. shrevei is endemic to Saint Vincent, an island in the Caribbean Lesser Antilles that is part of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.[3][4] Its natural habitats are rainforests forest edge, and montane meadows at elevations of 275–922 m (902–3,025 ft) above sea level. It lives both on the ground and on vegetation.[1]


    Males measure 20.8–23.4 mm (0.82–0.92 in) and females 23.5–34.2 mm (0.93–1.35 in) in snout–vent length. P. shrevei has a rich wood-brown to rich tan dorsum. There is a dark interocular bar bordering the snout; otherwise the dorsal patterning varies, some individuals are patternless whereas others have a broad dark brown scapular "W" and other patterns. The ventral surface is creamy. The sides are red, as are the undersides of both fore- and hindlimbs.[2]

    The call is a two-note call, emitted from the leaves of trees and shrubs.[2]

    Conservation status

    P. shrevei is threatened by habitat loss caused by urbanization, tourism development, and agriculture.[1]
