The southern pastel frog or Hispaniola robber frog, Eleutherodactylus leoncei, is a species of frog in the Eleutherodactylidae family. It is endemic to Hispaniola and known from the Massif de la Selle, both in the Dominican Republic and in Haiti. Its natural habitats are upland pine forests. Males call from the ground. It is threatened by habitat loss caused by logging and agriculture. It is known from the Sierra de Bahoruco National Park (Dominican Republic), but habitat degradation is occurring in this area too.
