The Silverstone’s poison frog is a species of frog in the family Dedrobatidae.

The Silverstone’s poison frog can be distinguished from other members of the Dendrobatidae family by its large size and the lack of stripes in its orange-and-black or red-and-black coloration. Although they superficially resemble the black-legged poison dart frog (Phyllobates bicolor), they can be readily differentiated by observing the coarsely granular skin on the lower back that is smooth in P. bicolor , more prominent foot tubercles, and by various other differences.
