Comprehensive Description

The greenhouse frog (Eleutherodactylus planirostris) is a tiny frog native to Cuba (and possibly several other Caribbean islands) that is now established as an exotic species in the southeastern United States, Hawaii, and Guam (Christy et al. 2007). Its common name derives from the fact that it often stows away on nursery plants or otherwise turns up in greenhouses.
