The yellow dyer rainfrog, or Diasporus citrinobapheus, is named for its bright color. "Citrinobapheus" is derived from the Greek words citrinos (citrin-yellow) and bapheus (dyer) referring to the yellow body color that stains one’s fingers after touching the frog. This recently discovered species was described for the first time in 2012.
