I believe this is Isthmohyla rivularis. It was spotted on a vine well above our heads and I could only manage these shots before it hopped down and disappeared over a ridge. -
Observed by Josimar Estrella, Michael Méndez, Gladys Jacques and Víctor Acosta-Chaves. Observed inside a bromeliad, in a secondary forest close to a riparian forest during the day.
Field work in relation to the observation was made thanks to Mohammed Bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund.
This species was seen by Esteban Matarrita in February of 2012, he give me the picture and I and another herpetologist confirm that it is the Crytically Endangered Species Isthmohyla angustilineata, it was found in Cerro Dantas WildLIfe Refuge.
