O. Escudo de Veraguas

Oophaga ‘Escudo de Veraguas’
Schmidt, 1857

Until recently “escudos” had been firmly classified as one of the many pumilio morphs/locales.  Analysis were conducted convincing some that it should be a separate specie.  Others are not convinced and continue to consider them to be pumilio.  As a keeper of  escudos and a variety of other pumilio I would not be surprised if at some point escudos were again solidly classified as a morph of pumilio; however, for the purposes of this site it has been separated.
