Comment

Confused with Anomaloglossus beebei and Allobates marchesianus prior to its description. See account for Surinam population by Ouboter and Jairam, 2012, Amph. Suriname: 24-26, who noted that the Surinam populations have a different call than the populations in Guyana, suggested the need for further study.
