Tiny white-backed frog - closeup, La Isla Escondida, Colombia Including the uncropped shot in this series to show how impossibly tiny some of these frogs are. This one I estimate at about 2cm but don&#039;t consider that to be very accurate. Notable feature of this frog is the white back.<br />

  1. Very cool! It's general appearance looks like Pristimantis again (which would not be a surprise since there are soooooo many little Pristimantis frogs in Amazonia). I don't think I've ever seen a picture of one with a white back like this. Hopefully that is a characteristic of this species and not just a variation in a variable species. Posted 4 months ago
    1. Thanks, John. I'm hoping it to be an explicit characteristic too. Posted 4 months ago
      1. I looked through the individual pages for all 200+ Pristimantis on https://www.batrachia.com/orden-anura/craugastoridae-252-spp/pristimantis/ and unfortunately none of the pictured ones had white backs. But the large majority of the species had no photos, so not that helpful. Posted 4 months ago
        1. Thanks for doing that research! I also paged through a checklist for Colombia which has some with photos, no luck there either. Posted 4 months ago
