Ikakogi is a monotypic genus of frog in the family Centrolenidae. It has been tentatively placed in the subfamily Centroleninae, although more recent analyses suggest that it is the sister group of the clade Centroleninae+ Hyalinobatrachiinae.

The only species is Ikakogi tayrona, or the Magdalena giant glass frog. It is endemic to the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Magdalena Department, Colombia. It is the only glass frog that is known to show maternal care (in other glass frogs parental care is provided by males, if at all).
