Great frog! And what a restricted range: http://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/21690#taxon_range
Would you consider adding this to the Global Amphibian Blitz? If so go here:

Thanks for commenting. When looking at the range map I am not so sure anymore that it is flavescens. Could also be a yellow morph of A. franciscus?!
Hmm that's tricky. The general consensus is that the IUCN rages are pretty rough, http://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/21688#taxon_range
Maybe a Guyane Atelopus expert will chime in....
It's likely flavescens. Note the color of the limbs Scott. They look like they fit with the pink venter of flavescens vs. darker (not pink) in franciscus.
Scott. Can you post a PDF here? I can send you a PDF of my Atelopus book that has pic's of many morphs of both A. flavescens and franciscus. This is A. flavescens for sure.
A. franciscus doesn't have a yellow morph.
I trust Sapito on this one. There's no way to post a PDF in a comment, just URLs if you could post it elsewhere, like Dropbox.
If it's helpful I can also post a picture with a ventral view of this specimen. I would also be very interested in a pdf of your book, Sapito. Thanks for the confirmation of identity, by the way!
