I just call them "painted mantellas." What are the real differences? I have seen some places mislabel them, like baroni is madagascarensis, and nigrans is a subspecies of madagascarensis. This is mind boggling. I tried doing a google search, but they can often mislabel the frogs. I once saw a Mantella betsileo labeled as ebenaui. I know definitely the differences between amazonicus, ventricumaculatus, lamasi, imitor, and intermedius, but information on mantellas is more sketchy. Plus, some are even considering that certain color morphs of mantellas are different species, like the red form of M. aurantiaca.
