Liuixalus hainanus is a species of frog in the Rhacophoridae family. It is endemic to the Hainan Island, China, and only known from its type locality, Mount Diaoluo in Lingshui Li Autonomous County.

Liuixalus hainanus resembles Liuixalus ocellatus. Little is known about this newly described species. It has been recorded from bushes and bamboo forests at mid-altitudes (about 700 m (2,300 ft) asl). It is likely negatively affected by habitat degradation and deforestation caused by smallholder farming and wood extraction.
