I'm just glad someone with a nice camera got that one ;)

Very nice pictures! Did you happen to get the odd white one as well?
Thanks! Yeah, got the whole lot and did some horse trading at AFD to try and pair some up. The white one went to another frogger, along with the pastores, darkland, and I picked up some lady cayos. Good times !

A real beauty!
Do you know exactly were they come from?
I plan an other photo trip to Panama and would have great pleasure taking pics of this incredible pumilio in its habitat!

I recently picked up a female too. Good luck finding a male. Is she proven? Beautiful frog!
All set with a male, thanks to a very nice member of the board.

The locale of this O. pumilio population is relatively large and poorly studied. Basically, cross the river that separates Costa Rica and Panama (south of the village of Bri Bri) and you will be at the beginning of the range. I have no idea how contiguous the population is or is not.

Merci!
I remember this river at the border between Panama/Costa Rica at Sixaola/Guabito.

yup, was ready to throw down the plastic, but you beat me to it!! I did get the two someone posted that were at JL Exotics....never bought from him before, but mine were also from SNDF, and his are F1s. So, that odd color morph- is it really 'Dorados, or is perhaps an unnamed species?? Has anyone seen others like it? Keep up posted on whether or not it likes the others...

I have a pair and have been referring to them as spotted eldorado and keeping them seperate from my plain eldorado. The markings are notably different and consistent with the offspring they are also 26-27mm as oppose to the plain eldorado which are about 24mm. If you search my posts you can see pics of the different offspring under my classified adds. It is my opinion that the spotted eldorado are representative of the "Las Tablas" population that inhabits areas near the Panama/CR border.
