Adelphobates quinquevittatus (Rio Madeira poison frog or more ambiguously, Amazonian poison frog) is a species of frog in the Dendrobatidae family. It is found in the Rio Madeira drainage in the southern Amazon Basin in Brazil and Bolivia. Most pre-1990 records of this species refer to Ranitomeya ventrimaculata.[2] Its natural habitats are tropical moist lowland forests, freshwater marshes, and intermittent freshwater marshes. It is threatened by habitat loss.[1]
