|Scientific classification Colostethus|
Their common name is rocket frogs, but this name may refer to frogs in other genera and families, following the taxonomic revision of the genus in 2006.
Before the revision, it had 138 species, but this was reduced to 18 species, after species of the former Colostethus were distributed among eight genera in two families, that is, in Dendrobatidae and in the newly established family Aromobatidae (e..g., Anomaloglossus).
Dorsal colouration is cryptic, brown.
A pale oblique lateral stripe is present (but may be broken or incomplete).
Dorsal skin is granular posteriorly.
In adult males, third finger is swollen.
There are currently 20 species in this genus:
