Ranitomeya

Ranitomeya is a genus of dart poison frogs. In 2006 Grant et al. revised the systematics of dart poison frogs and placed many species formerly classified in the genus Dendrobates, Minyobates and Phyllobates in Ranitomeya.[1] In 2011 Brown et al. following other scientists, who assumed the existence of two distinct clades in Ranitomeya, erected the genus Andinobates for 12 species of Ranitomeya.[2]

Ranitomeya and Andinobates frogs can be distinguished from those in genera such as Dendrobates in that they are generally smaller, have more than two colors, and seem to glitter if viewed from certain angles. Ranitomeya is widespread in the Amazon basin, whereas Andinobates species are found only in the northern Andes down to Central America.

Species[edit]

Primarily, Ranitomeya has absorbed nearly all of the species in the genus Dendrobates. In 2011 Brown et al. erected the genus Andinobates containing 12 species formerly classified in the genus Ranitomeya.
