I was looking around for some pics since I had never heard of this imitator morph and found another one I hadn't seen yet either. Balsapuerto....could that be what your referring to (could be a different name in europe) or is this another morph too? Looks like an Iquitos vent/amazonicus mimic.

No that's not it. The front half is red and the rear blue...I believe.

There is currently NO LEGAL TRADE of this morph - any seen for sale in the US or Europe are due to illegal smuggling.
Maybe, but not legally unless that is old info

I believe Mark sold a couple small groups in Canada, pretty sure you will see Benedicta offered a little later this year and then the Veradero Imis' shortly thereafter....but both will come to the US legally this year.

I don't mean to beat a dead horse by bringing up an old topic, but I'm still wondering...what species are these guys imitating? I'm guessing vent or fants?

That form of fantastica is also the holotype for the species (i.e. the specimens originally collected and used to describe the species). I heard recently this population has been almost completely extirpated from the wild due to collection.

Yes, the holotype frogs may be gone from the wild, these frogs often lack the black 'crown' and have solid orange heads.
