Ranitomeya dorisswansonae (Rueda-Almonacid, Rada, Sánchez-Pacheco, Velásquez-Álvarez & Quevedo, 2006)

Ranitomeya dorisswansonae

R. dorisswansonae, listed as Critically Endangered (Cr) on the Red List, inhabits the eastern flanks of the northern Cordillera Central of the Colombian Andes at 1,780 m a.s.l.. It lives on the forest floor and is often found hiding in bromeliads up to 2 meters from the ground. However, the species’ forest habitat has been lost in many places, due to cattle grazing, slective logging and agricultural corps.

The frog’s ground color is black or dark brown, with a reddish or orange pattern on the head and upper half of the back, as well as on the front limbs. There are two irregular yellow dots, one on the ventral side, between the front limbs, and the other on the underside of the head.
