The upland coqui, (coqui de la montaña or coqui de montaña in Spanish), Eleutherodactylus portoricensis, is a species of frog in the Leptodactylidae family endemic to Puerto Rico. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. It is one of the only two species to actually emit the sound "coqui", the other one being the common coqui. Above its eyes, this species has a white half-moon, and in its belly, it has dark-brown spots. These characteristics make it easy to identify.
