Andinobates abditus is a species of frog in the Dendrobatidae family. It's is sometimes known as the Collins' poison frog. It is endemic to Ecuador where it is only known from its type locality, at the eastern base of the Reventardor volcano, in the Napo Province.

Andinobates abditus no longer survives in its type locality, although it is possible that it occurs elsewhere (including the nearby Cayambe Coca Ecological Reserve, but its presence there has not been confirmed). The disappearance from the type locality was due to habitat loss, possibly together Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis infection. The type locality was characterized by dense, humid forest with lots of mosses and epiphytes.
