Atelopus quimbaya is a species of toad in the family Bufonidae. It is endemic to Colombia and known from the western slopes of the Cordillera Central in Risaralda, Quindío, and Caldas Departments.[2][3] Its natural habitats are sub-Andean and Andean forests[1] at altitudes of 1,650–2,940 m (5,410–9,650 ft) above sea level.[2] Chytridiomycosis is a serious risk to this rare species.[1]
