The following are the 4 most common forms / localities for D. auratus
described in the Heselhaus book.
Toaboga Island - The D. auratus from this Pacific island are
normally yellow-gold stripes on brown background. The size ranges
from 1 1/8" (3 cm) to 1 1/2"
(4 cm). This is the source of the population that is found in Hawaii.
Costa Rican, western Panama, and Nicaragua - these are the bright green
and black D. auratus that most people think of. The size ranges
from 1 1/2" (4 cm) to 2 3/8"
Panama Canal zone - These frogs are green and black but the green is
only thin lines or spots. Typically size is 1" (2.5 cm).
Panama Blue Morph - These frogs have the same markings as the typical
green and black D. auratus but instead of green there is blue.
