It's actually BETWEEN the eyes, which is why they call it intraoccular. It's a darker triangle like if you drew lines from the median eyes to the two sets of lateral eyes.

It's also like the opposite of H. arizonensis who has a lightened intraocular triangle.

Yes! There's hope yet. I could have done that with the picture but I'm so lazy I'd rather just make fun of you. Razz

It's more noticeable in some specimens than others.

It's pretty noticeable in these ones:



And less noticeable:


I think your problem may be that it blends a little into the stripes immediately behind it.



(haha, I did an image search for "vittatus" and the first results were a dart frog species I saw in Costa Rica.)
