Anomaloglossus wothuja is a species of frog in the Aromobatidae family. It is endemic to Venezuela where it is only known from its type locality, the base of Cerro Sipapo, Tobogán del Cuao, in the Amazonas state.[2] The species is known from medium to tall evergreen forest, where individuals were found on large rocks on the bank of a stream. Tadpoles were collected from the back of a male, and from a small pool beside a stream.[1]
