Hello, I am interested to know if there is any viewer that might be able to identify this dendrobate that I found last week, downstream from Iquitos, Peru. possibly someone has a complex of this species in captivity? I am not sure, some other herpetologist were quite surprised when they saw the picture. Any comments or Ideas will be helpful!

WOW! That is an awesome frog. Looks like it has features of multiple species, but there are so many locality morphs its hard to say,but it looks like an amazonicus, or ventrimaculatus in many ways and like a fantasticus or imitator in others.

looks like a "lowland" fantasticus. its got white lines on body and blue lines on back legs with an orange head. try looking at dendrobates.org

I would also say some sort of fantasticus morph, except the only thing that throws me off is that the body is almost half orange and the striping on the head extends to the back. Very interesting tho.

I was going to say lowland fant.. and read on down to see what others said.. and "thedude" also said same so I agree with thedude... mine do not have the butterfly or star crowns on the heads as my normal fants do.. in fact 2 of my lowland fants look nearly identical to the pic posted by thedude... these are simply gorgeous frogs..
