Dendropsophus berthalutzae is a species of frog in the family Hylidae. It is endemic to southeastern Brazil and occurs in the coastal lowlands and the Serra do Mar in Espírito Santo, Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, and eastern Paraná states. It is named in honor of Bertha Lutz, a Brazilian zoologist and feminist.

Dendropsophus berthalutzae occurs low in vegetation in secondary forest, often near swamps, and in open areas, such as grassland. The male advertisement call consists of one or two notes, with 2–12 pulses each. The dominant frequency is 4315–4765 Hz. The call is different from the calls of related species. The eggs are hung in the vegetation above temporary still water; the tadpoles fall to the water and develop there.

Dendropsophus berthalutzae is a very common species. It is adaptable, but could be locally impacted by agriculture and wood plantations.
