Red-eyed tree frogs (leaf frogs) are part of the Agalychnis genus while monkey frogs are part of the Phyllomedusa genus.

They are closely related to "monkey frogs"...

The genus Phyllomedusa (which are most commonly called monkey frogs) and the genus Agalychnis (containing red-eyed and black-eyed treefrogs) are both in the same subfamily, Phyllomedusinae. This group is usually referred to as "leaf frogs" or "branch frogs."

HTH :)

Just stick to the genuses man. Easy to not get confused that way.

Just a little correction. The plural of genus is genera.
