kjhurme's ID: Leptodactylus insularum, a member of Neotropical Grass Frogs (Genus Leptodactylus)

Buena atrapada! Yo estudie esta especie en Panama, y estoy muy interesada en la historia natural de ellos en todas las partes!
Donde lo atrapaste? En la selva o en un charco? Los brazos son flacos, entonces probablemente es una hembra. Solo los vi en charcos durante la temporada reproductiva. Quiero saber si los machos tienen brazos menos gruesos en la temporada no reproductiva (cuando están en los bosques). Este bicho tenia espinas en las manos?

According to Heyer and de Sá (2011), this male is Leptodactylus insularum. The only Colombian L. bolivianus would be in Leticia. The best character for separating males of these species is based on the thumb spines: L. insularum has 2 thumb spines and L. bolivianus has one.
Here is the citation for the recent revision of the L. bolivianus species group.
Heyer, W. R. and R. O. de Sá. 2011. Variation, systematics, and relationships of the Leptodactylus bolivianus complex (Amphibia: Anura: Leptodactylidae). Smithsonian Contributions to Zoology 635:1-58.

Thanks a lot kjhurme.

We found this specimen in a flooded pasture after a heavy rain. No, it didn't have spines so probably was a female.

Thanks Juan. On closer inspection she seems to have a scar in her armpit - maybe a sign of previous amplexus! Very cool! Thanks! By the way, conoces Alejandro Rico Guevara? Quizas la proxima vez que estamos en Colombia, podemos ir a buscar ranas!
