Default Metalic Pumilio

Some really odd looking Pumilio came in in the last shipment labeled Branco, doubt that's what they are, 2 are green yellow and 1 is blue, all look like they are made of tin foil with color over top...guess they will be Strictly import '13, unknown morph as a few friends in Europe VERY familiar with Panama have never seen them before, I think they are 1.2, enjoy..

Those are gorgouse Mark! That looks like a good grab to bad they might be an "unknown/mislabeled" 😕. On the brighter side you could name them Pumilio Pulawski hahahaha.

They are exactly what they were labeled. I talked to a lot of people, and others got even more oddball looking ones then those. Those actually look like normal bronco compared to the few I have seen.

If you don't want them please I will buy them

Side note, yours are quite beautiful colors.

Very nice Mark

I dont doubt the morph type. There were others less intense then those but of similar patterns too.

Apparently someone in Michigan got a hold of some very odd ones/ Not sure if from SR direct or someone else....

This is a very accurate description of what these frogs look like and having been fortunate enough to see these frogs in person, I must say (sorry mark)..these pictures really do not capture their overall brilliance. Despite all the amazing frogs Mark had at his place, I could not drag myself away from in front of this particular group.

Mainland pumilio, likely chiriqui area, so much terrain, so little information.

They came in with the big Rio Bronco import and from what Ive been told by those that got to look through every one of them, these were just one end of the spectrum and there were intermediate forms that blended all the variations we saw.

Finally have some calling, it is very interesting, a lower tone than most of my Pumilio and a little raspy, if I am lucky enough to get breeding offspring may tell me something.

A pic of the lone baby, about 60% grown, this frog started off as a spec of grey that had virtually no color or pattern

No I think, no locale would be more accurate though I suspect they may not even be Pumilio but perhaps Vencentei based on the male's call which was a raspy sound. If this juvy turns out to be a female they will be very expensive and rare display animals, if male then I know it is completely unrelated to one of the females but which one I do not know.

There are several pics on the interwebs of frogs labeled vicentei that looks very much much like your frogs. Does the range of vicentei extend into Panama/mainland Panama near Bocas del Toro?

EDIT: a simple search has shown that vicentei is endemic to Panama

If I understand correctly, you have purchased these frogs as pumilio Rio Branco, but they do not look Rio Branco. Did you ask the person who sold them about their origin? If they are vicentei, you made a deal, in my opinion!

Sorry, the link is in German and maybe you already know it, but also just to hear the call, you can notice the differences between pumilio and vicentei.

Also Costa Rica with the blue population near Dominical.

What is the source of this information? Everywhere I've seen says vicentei is a Panama endemic. The STRI, the originator of those "blue vicentei" photos, lists it as taken in Panama as well.

I should clarify, with the blue morph ranging as far north as Dominical. PM me if you want more info.
