Comment

See account by Haddad and Martins, 1994, Herpetologica, 50: 282-295, who noted that a similar, apparently unnamed, species occurs in the Amazonian lowlands of Peru, and that the review of Phyllobates pictus by Lescure, 1976, Bull. Mus. Natl. Hist. Nat. Paris, Ser. 3, Zool., 377: 487-488, is likely based on this species. See Silverstone, 1976, Sci. Bull. Nat. Hist. Mus. Los Angeles Co., 27: 42, who regarded this species as a pattern class of Ameerega picta (as Phyllobates). See De la Riva, Márquez, and Bosch, 1996, J. Nat. Hist., 30: 1413-1420, for Bolivian record and discussion of taxonomic uncertainty regarding this and related species. Köhler and Lötters, 1999, Bonn. Zool. Beitr., 48: 259-273, also note a Bolivian record. Lescure and Marty, 2000, Collect. Patrimoines Nat., Paris, 45: 96-97, provided a brief account and photo. Schulte, 1999, Pfeilgiftfrösche: 227-235, provided an account. Roberts, Brown, von May, Arizabal, Schulte, and Summers, 2006, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 41: 149-164, provided DNA sequence data that suggest that nominal Ameerega hahneli is polyphyletic. Lötters, Jungfer, Henkel, and Schmidt, 2007, Poison Frogs: 336-342, provided an account and placed this species in their Ameerega picta group. Twomey and Brown, 2008, Zootaxa, 1757: 1-17, discussed the Ameerega hahneli complex and noted that populations on the eastern versant of Peru represented a distinct species, Ameerega altamazonica; they also noted other unnamed, but likely distinct species in the complex. See account for Surinam population by Ouboter and Jairam, 2012, Amph. Suriname: 88-90.See Cole, Townsend, Reynolds, MacCulloch, and Lathrop, 2013, Proc. Biol. Soc. Washington, 125: 390-391, for brief account and records for Guyana.
