Hand without webbbing, foot with rudimentary webbing. Inner metatarsal tubercle relatively small and pigmented. Dorsal skin granular without ridges. Colouration very variable, with a predominance of dark brown. Upper lip without continuous white band. Males with distinct femoral glands and blackish paired subgular vocal sacs.

Similar species: All other species of the subgenus Gephyromantis. G. boulengeri is recognized by lacking any dorsal ridges and instead having a rather granular skin.
