Allobates insperatus is a species of frog in the Aromobatidae family. It is endemic to Amazonian slopes of eastern Ecuador; its range, however, extends to near the Colombian border and it may occur in that country too.[2] It inhabits leaf-litter in forest. It breeds in bracts of palms on the ground and other small, ephemeral pools. Its habitat is threatened by agriculture, logging, and oil exploration.[1]
