A stout-bodied frog with long, thin legs. Males average 45-50mm SVL, females up to 80mm. Dark gray in color above, with darker dorsolateral spots. Upper third or half of the iris is orange in color (Inger & Stuebing, 1997). Tadpoles are relatively large, with small black dots on a pale brown background.

Conservation measures already put into place include habitat and site based actions that establish and manage protected areas. Research efforts regarding taxonomy, population numbers, range, biology, and ecology are still needed.
