Craugastor chingopetaca Köhler & Sunyer, 2006

Subgenus: Craugastor
family: Craugastoridae
genus: Craugastor
Species Description: Kohler G, Sunyer J 2006 A new species of rain frog (genus Craugator) of the fitzingeri group from the Rio San Juan, southeastern Nicaragua. Senckenbergiana biologica 86:261-266.
Taxonomic Notes: Ospina-Sarria et al. (2015) described the species Craugastor metriosistus, which they treat as part of the C. fitzingeri group. Because C. fitzingeri is part of the subgenus Craugastor, other members of the C. fitzingeri group are also, by implication, part of that subgenus. This applies to C. metriosistus as well as to a second unallocated member of the C. fitzingeri group, C. chingopetaca.
