From "Reptile Hobbyist" September 1998, author Jack Wattley

"I have been fortunate to observe all three color forms of D. azureus. The most common form is medium blue with blackish spots. I have also seen a few specimens that were nearly solid blue in color, as well as three frogs that were a very light bluish green in shade".

That last description seems to be a "Green Sip" or Sipaliwini Savanna animal that we are familiar with, now 13 years later.

But the second description seems to allude to what we know in the Hobby to now be called - The "Sky Blue" azureus. There has been some speculation that this morph was a purely hobby created, or line-bred animal, but this article seems to counter that theory. I doubt that azureus were line bred back in 1998, but I could be wrong. I know that Sean Stewart has a couple breeding groups of these and has produced many offspring.


Bumping this for Chuck. Jack W. is definitely describing small to 'no spot' Azureus in-situ.
