We report the first record of the streamside frog Craugastor rupinius from the Central American Republic of Honduras. This species was previously known from adjacent areas of El Salvador and Guatemala. Due to the highly conserved morphology of anurans in this group, we used sequence data from the mtDNA gene 16S to confirm that the Honduran sample is conspecific with a verified sample of C. rupinius from El Salvador.
