I believe this is an adinobates bombetes, and I know that MPepper/UE has plans to bring in a variety of new adinobates/ranitomeya from Colombia in the next couple years. I think the frog you have pictured above is from Colombia, here is a link including a bunch of adinobates, some really nice looking frogs! One is granulated almost like a granuliferous...

This frog is not far from where the UE F1 Truncatus were collected (close to Bogota) - logistics would sure favor Mark being able to import this frog, although its rare in the wild so not sure how that will faire.

If I'm not mistaken, Andinobates bombetes tends to be a redder frog. This video looks more like Andinobates tolimense - specially the Andinobates sp. aff. tolimense from Supatá, Colombia that is pictured in the recent Ranitomeya revision by the guys at Dendrobates.org.
