Adelophryne gutturosa (common name: Guiana Shield frog) is a species of frog in the family Eleutherodactylidae (formerly in Leptodactylidae). It is found on the Guiana Shield from eastern Venezuela through Guyana to French Guiana and adjacent Brazil, possibly extending to Suriname. Its type locality is Mount Roraima. Its local Spanish name is ranita guturosa, roughly meaning "drop-splattered frog" in reference to its coloration.
This frog is not uncommon, although its secretive habits make it also difficult to find. It is found in the leaf-litter on the forest floor of rainforests near streams. Males call from the base of plants (often formations of Monotagma spicatum), hidden among rootlets and dead leaves.
Recent molecular research has found that A. gutturosa consists of more than one species.
