The Blue-bellied poison frog (Andinobates minutus), also known as the bluebelly poison frog, is a species of frog in the Dendrobatidae family. It is endemic to Colombia and Panama. Its natural habitats are tropical moist lowland forests. It is a locally abundant, terrestrial species. As the scientific name suggests, it is a small frog, only 13–16 mm (0.51–0.63 in) in snout–vent length. The eggs are deposited in leaf-litter; the male carries the tadpoles to bromeliads, where they complete their development.

It is threatened by habitat loss and pollution. This species is not collected for pet trade, unlike many other poison frogs.
