Phrynobatrachus bullans is a medium sized (snout–vent length < 28 mm) species of puddle frog. Members of this genus are identified by the presence of a midtarsal tubercle, elongate inner metatarsal tubercle, and metatarsal tubercle. Chevron shaped glands are clearly present on the dorsum. The suite of morphological features that characterize this species include a visible tympanum, moderate to extensive webbing, and lack of digital discs. This species can be distinguished from P. natalensis, which is morpholgically very similar, by its elongate post-ocular glands and advertisement call.
