Comprehensive DescriptionRead full entry
M 20-21 mm, F 21-26 mm. Different from other species of the group and possibly unrelated to these. The only representative of the group in northern Madagascar. Very slender appearance. Dorsal skin slightly granular. Males with a laterally blackish subgular vocal sac which also has whitish colour in its anterior part, and with very distinct rounded femoral glands.
Similar species: The most similar species is M. webbi which has white vocal sacs and is larger. M. lugubris, and young M. microtympanum are also somewhat similar. Confusion may also be possible with species of the subgenus Laurentomantis (which have a more granular skin).
