Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


M 28-35 mm, F 35-45 mm. Tibiotarsal articulation reaches beyond snout tip. Fifth toe longer than third toe. Femoral glands in males large and very prominent. Frenal stripe relatively distinct but fading before reaching the nostril. Ventrally whitish, including the throat. No distinct colour border between dorsum and flanks like in other Chonomantis. Often with a vertebral stripe (Glaw and Vences 2007).

Variation: Specimens from Itremo have a smaller body size, shorter hindlimbs, and their femoral glands are located closer to the cloaca; however, they do not show important genetic differentiation (Glaw and Vences 2007).
