Figs. 3–5 View FIGURE 3 View FIGURE 4 View FIGURE 5 (n–v), 6 (a–d), 8

Tables 2–4

An assemblage of three species: Andinobates altobueyensis (Silverstone 1975)   comb. nov., A. fulguritus (Silverstone 1975)   comb. nov. and A. viridis ( Myers & Daly 1976)   comb. nov.

Definition and diagnosis. SVL 14–17 mm; body uniform yellow to dark green dorsally; A. fulguritus   with black dorsolateral stripes and black oblique lateral stripes; A. altobueyensis   lacking dorsal stripes but with fine black irregular spots on dorsum; A. viridis   green with no black markings on dorsum; venter spotted or marbled in gray. Limbs identical to dorsal pattern and color. Vocalization data only available for A. fulguritus   ( Fig. 8 View FIGURE 8 , Table 5). Call consisting of short buzzes, notes 0.19–0.34 sec in length, repeated at 11–16 notes per minute. Call of A. viridis   sounds similar to that of A. fulguritus   , although recordings are lacking (D. Mejía- Vargas unpub. data, Table 5).
