Centrolene is a genus of glass frogs in the family Centrolenidae. The adult males are characterized by having a humeral spine, as most members of this family. The delimitation of this genus versus Cochranella is not fully resolved, and some species formerly in Centrolenella - which is nowadays synonymized with Centrolene - are now in Hyalinobatrachium.

Some species are called "giant glass frogs". But this is merely relative to the rest of their family, which contains numerous extremely diminutive species.
