Small poison dart frog of about 15mm; its basic colour is black with orange/red stripes from head down the back, legs and belly covered in an intricate blue reticulated pattern, hence the name. Apparently its poison is of the weaker kind, which the frog produces by ingesting a type of mite. Females are known to grow to about 2cm, so I think this might be a male. Fortunately, this species' conservation status is "Least concern" http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/55208...
Tropical rainforest in the Amazon region. Apart from Ecuador, they can be found in Brazil, Peru, Colombia, and French Guiana.
