|Taxonomic Notes:||Most records of this species before 1990 refer to Dendrobates ventrimaculatus. Caldwell and Myers (1990) and Martins and Haddad (1990) independently concluded that the name Dendrobates (now Adelphobates) quinquevittatus Steindachner, 1864, had been misapplied in recent literature. It is currently restricted to a species that is neither as variable or widespread as previously thought, and which is known only from the upper Rio Madeira drainage of Rondonia and adjacent (southern) Amazonas, Brazil. In this account we follow the traditional, broader definition of the species.|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Miguel Trefaut Rodrigues, Claudia Azevedo-Ramos|
|Reviewer(s):||Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson, Neil Cox and Bruce Young)|
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
|Range Description:||This species occurs in southern Amazonia, in the Rio Madeira drainage of western Brazil, although it is known definitively only from Rondônia and adjacent Amazonas, and also Iquitos, Peru.|

|Population:||It is abundant.|
|Current Population Trend:||Stable|
|Habitat and Ecology:||It lives in the leaf-litter on the forest floor in the tropical rainforest. It lays its eggs out of the water on a leaf, and the tadpoles are carried to the seasonal water sources including bromeliads.|
|Major Threat(s):||Forest conversion, fire, logging and mining are threats to this species.|
|Conservation Actions:||Conservation units are present within its range.|
