Description

These yellowish-brown pebbly-skinned toads range from 64-120 mm SVL. The venter is yellowish. They have gold marbled eyes. Both males and females have prominent crests above their eyes and upturned snouts. Females have rougher skin and higher crests than males, and lack nuptial pads on the first fingers. Females are also generally larger than males, reaching a maximum of 120 mm in SVL vs. 85 mm SVL for males. Males are also generally more yellowish in color (Matos-Torres 2006).

This species was first described by Cope (1868). In Puerto Rico, this toad is called Sapo concho (Stuart et al. 2008).
