Comprehensive DescriptionRead full entry
M 40-45 mm, F 40-45 mm. Weakly expressed outer dorsolateral folds, no inner dorsolateral folds, interocular tubercles, supraocular spines, nor heel tubercles. Dorsal skin smooth. Colouration variable but most individuals with a distinct light stripe along the upper lip.
Similar species: Gephyromantis redimitus and G. cornutus also call along brooks in forest, but have single subgular vocal sacs and mostly two black tubercles between the eyes. Tibiotarsal articulation of G. redimitus reaches only beyond the eye. G. leucomaculatus has a smaller inner metatarsal tubercle, lacks the light band along the upper lip, and calling males are not found along brooks. It is especially similar to G. zavona.
