Liuixalus is a small genus of rhacophorid frogs that are distributed in southern China. All species now in Liuixalus were originally placed in Philautus. There is no diagnostic morphological characters to define the genus. Instead, the genus was erected based on molecular genetic evidence showing distinctness of Liuixalus romeri from the rest of Chiromantis. The genus name commemorates Cheng-chao Liu, a Chinese herpetologist.
