R. imitator, but you wont get a positive locale/morph ID based just on appearance.

It's a Ranitomeya imitator Nominal. They mimic the variabilis, but are in fact an imitator, and this is the nominal morph.

No problem... I have those as well as the variabilis Southerns. Easiest way to tell the difference is that the variabilis have 1 nose spot and the imitators have 2. Also, the coloring on the variabilis seems to be more metallic and bright - at least with mine.

That's exactly what I was going off when I first saw them!!! But I wasn't quite sure...I want to get two more but I had to be sure of what I had and not mix .

Make sure you get information from the breeder that supports your guess. Yes, it looks like a nominant imi, but there's no way to make a 100% positive ID just by looking at this frog. If you can't get a positive ID, don't mix it with other frogs if you plan on producing and distributing offspring.
