  Dendrobatidae
The distribution of living members of the family Dendrobatidae is indicated in red.
Ford and Cannatella (1993) defined Dendrobatidae to be the node-based name for the most recent ancestor of Allobates, Aromobates, Colostethus, Dendrobates, Epipedobates, Minyobates, Phobobates, and Phyllobates, and all of its descendants.
The position of Dendrobatidae was addressed by Ford (1989b) in a phylogenetic analysis of neobatrachians, with an emphasis on ranids and leptodactylids.
