About 6 weeks ago I purchased a pair of "Alanis" froglets at the Carolina Reptile Show to add to my small collection of PDFs. I suspect they are a color morph of D. tinctorius. They have bright orange markings on head and rest of pattern is tinc-like. The blue on legs are not yet evident. Looks black but I hope they will color-up as they grow. Can someone set me straight?

They are D. Tinc morphs from Surinam.

Thanks Luke. As I suspected. Didn't know about the Surinam origin though. I can rest now and finally tag a latin name on these guys. With a biology background I have a hard time accepting cutesy breeder titles.
Also nice Death-Metal avatar there !

That is a cool guide Frogman ! I added that one to my list of Favorites. I would not have guessed there was so much color diversity within the species. I think it is also cool that the names were coined usually from the name of the finder or the daughters of the importers. What a tribute. Thanks for sharing!
