Hi Phil
Love the pic, my fav pum color. My Cristobals have a similar color and pattern - enough to make me content and happy if I never have a chance to own this morph of El Dorado. I can see why you miss these guys.

Just got a pair that look very similar...I can see why you miss them! Hopefully I'll have some babies to send your way if/when the move goes down.

Phil, when you bought these, was Marcus selling them as "Spotted El Dorado"?

Hi Zach,

I bought the sexed pair of pumilio from Marcus B. at his Hollywood warehouse circa spring of 2009, if memory serves me. I was looking at numerous pumilio with Marcus and he suggested 3-4 pairs, all of which were 'Bastimento' orange and white except for those two. They were not labeled or 'touted' as anything special and again, if memory serves me, they may have simply been referred to as 'Eldorado'. They WERE physically 'different' from all the other pumilio - noticeably larger and with that odd half-moon, 'squiggle' pattern. They were priced the same as well.

I have yet to see any pumilio that look like them, but admittedly I'm not 'up' on all the 'las tablas' imports - maybe someone else is. These animals are larger and have a more robust call, as well.

Craig B. is currently in possession of this 1.1 breeding group. There have been a few transfers of F1's to several people in the New England area - Ray C., Eric S., Ed S. as well as some folks in the MADS Baltimore and NY area. Possibly a few made it to some of the far corners of the U.S - your LA area, as well as CA. Craig would have to chime in on that.

After speaking with Brian K. on higher altitude Costa Rican frogs, I am of the belief that these animals were collected further inland and from a higher elevation. That could account for their larger size and unique pattern. I have observed most of the 'iconic' Costa Rica phenotypes in situ and while there is great variation and spotted pattern, I have not seen anything like those. Again, I have not been to the 'las tablas' area in Panama, so I cannot speak for inland Panamanian frogs.

Hope this helps and please post if you get additional information or have further questions.
