Bufo coccifer is a medium to large (males to 62 mm and females to 82 mm, SVL) rough-skinned toad that is highly variable in size, shape, color, skin texture and advertisement call. Cranial crests are prominent and the parietal crests are usually well developed. It differs from close relatives in the coccifer group as follows: larger and with smaller dorsal tubercles and smaller, less spinous ventral tubercles than B. cycladen, larger and with larger tubercles than B. pisinnus, lacking the large brown ventral spots in marbled pattern of B. signifer, smaller and with more rounded parotoid glands than B. ibarrai, and texture of the skin with more sharply spinose lateral tubercles in males than B. porteri.
