Citronella Dart Frog
|This frog was an intermediary in the importation â€œtimelineâ€. Powder blues and Cobalts were being imported in 94, 95 and 96, and suddenly the â€œGiant Yellow Backâ€ or Jack Wattley morph began to appear, and at very high prices. (Jack Wattley is a well known discus breeder, whose travels to South America were instrumental in this frog being imported.) Kind of funny how the name game goes, I am not sure when they became known as Citronellas, but somewhere along the line this name was applied and it stuck.|
|These were a sensation, they are spectacular frogs! One of the large tinc morphs, and a bright yellow back with inky blue legsâ€¦.needless to say they were very sought after frogs for a few years, and remain one of the more popular tinctorius morphs.
This is one of the most straight forward frogs out there to identify, the only variation that I have ever heard of is a â€œno dotâ€ form, other than that, if it has a bright yellow back and flanks, usually with a dark spot in the center, and dark blue legs with no markings, it’s a Citronella.
