       Coloration in alcohol apparently similar to that of Therobates gertschi, new species.  Specimen newly molted and dusky markings are faint. Malleoli white.
         Dentition similar to that of Therobates branchi, new species, except there is a minute intermediate tooth behind the principal tooth of the fixed finger.
