Adelphobates galactonotus 'Blue'

Parking some info about Adelphobates galactonotus "Blue" here for informational purposes and my own future reference.

According to CITES permit records and publications, Adelphobates galactonotus 'Blue' live specimens have never been legally exported from its native country with a commercial permit. In 2014, 22 live WC A. galactonotus (morph unknown) were exported from Brazil to Australia under a CITES scientific permit. Since private possession of Dendrobatids is prohibited in Australia, and since no galactonotus have left Australia with CITES permits since 2012, there is no legal pathway for these animals or their descendants to be outside the Australian scientific community.

Since the 'Blue' morph was only discovered well after the species was CITES listed (discovery 2012, CITES Appendix II listing October 22, 1987), the common suspicion that there could be captive stock that left the native country legally under pre-listing zoo or research permits that didn't specifically prohibit subsequent distribution of specimens (as CITES permits do) doesn't hold.

Here is the CITES info sheet on the species, including information on the blue morph:

Here is an article from USFWS on the blue morph specifically:

A similar report from the US Embassy in Brazil:
