Ranitomeya flavovittata is a species of frog in the family Dendrobatidae. It is endemic to Peru and known with certainty only from the Loreto Region where its type locality is.[2][3]

Habitat and conservation[edit]

Ranitomeya flavovittata occur in old-growth and secondary tropical forests. They seem to use Guzmania bromeliads for breeding. Habitat loss and pet trade are threats to the species.[1]
