It looks like a Ranitomeya lamasi Orange Pasco could be wrong

thanks guys
looking on google, the phyllobates vittatus seem to be the most similar
they have the single u shaped stripe like mine,
the Ranitomeya lamasi Orange Pasco seem to have too much colour on the body.
thanks for the help, greatly appreciated

Remember identifying by sight is difficult and not reliable. The two frogs mentions are quite different. One is a thumbnail (lamasi/ sirensis)). They look quite different. With the lamasi/sirensis and vittatus there are different locals also. The nominant and I have seen a red. By that it looks like a Vittatus.
