  1. Ohhh, we almost got the genus complete! Missing:
    - Phyllobates vittatus

    Some added complexity, there's also a to be described species called Phyllobates sp. aff. aurotaenia:

    During our recent trip we photographed what people in Colombia refer to as "Phyllobates niche sp. nov". I'm still trying to figure out if this is the same species as the undescribed one above. But if it is, we'd cover that one as well :)

        1. I'm willing to make the sacrifice for the greater good!

          I actually have a good friend there who is excellent with frogs, so next trip!
