Crepidophryne epiotica (common name: Cerro Utyum toad) is a species of toad in the Bufonidae family. It is found in Costa Rica and Panama. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

Only few specimens of Crepidophryne epiotica have been observed or collected in Costa Rica and Panama's unaltered premontane forests. In Costa Rica this species is known as "sapo ratón" or "mouse toad". Crepidophryne seems to be diurnal and is found over dead leafs on the forest floor. Its coloration and shape makes it cryptic and unobservable unless it moves.
