I doubt it is being worked with since it was relatively recently described (1988), unless it was smuggled to someone since all of the countries in which it occurs, either do not export wildlife or have strict regulations on exports. Your best bet is probably either out of Peru, or WIKIRI in Colombia......

I'm not sure why it would be a must have since most specimens appear to be a small dumpy dull colored frog......

Ed, I am sure it probably is being produced very well in Lebanon or any number of East Europe countries.

Well if a bunch of people suddenly start wanting it, I'm sure it will end up there.

The must have factors include coloration (of the pics I've seen, even the "dull" colored specimens had cool patterns), but also the fact that it's mostly terrestrial (unusual in Phyllomedusines), and the smaller size for the genus.

EDIT: I didn't mean to open a can of smuggled worms, I was just hopeful...

I just found it odd that in a hobby where people have historically ignored the little brown frogs, (and occasionally the bright orange (Mantella aurantiaca (I saw a whole table of them at a IAD go without a single sale), or the bright black and yellow toad (Melanophryniscus stelzneri) go unsold until export shut down and you couldn't get them anymore (last round of exports before the ones that are currently available)), that a fairly nondiscript treefrog would generate an I want thread... particularly when at least Phyllomedusa (hyponchondrialis) azurea is known to inhabit grasslands and open habits so it also can be found dwelling in the understory/ground areas of the habitat...
