Description

Males 26-29 mm, females 31-39 mm. The body is flattened. The dorsum consists of a net-like pattern of green on a brown background. Most of the ventral surface is white, but the hands, feet, and posterior surface of the belly are red.

Similar species: Dendrophryniscus minutus is the only other species with a body form similar to that of A. spumarius, but it does not have a green net-like pattern on the dorsum, and its ventral surface is black at the front and spotted black on the belly.
