M 47-53 mm, F 48 mm. One of the largest species in the subgenus Duboimantis. Distinguishable by the distinct but weakly expressed interocular tubercles, absence of other tubercles and ridges, distinct and large femoral glands, and relatively short hindlimbs, the tibiotarsal articulation not reaching beyond snout tip, often reaching only the eye or nostril.
Similar species: G. cornutus has longer hind legs (tibiotarsal articulation reaches beyond tip of snout), conspicuous black tubercles between the eyes, smaller femoral glands and a smaller body size. In G. granulatus, the tibiotarsal articulation reaches beyond tip of snout, vocal sacs are paired and the two black tubercles between the eyes are not present.
