F 35-36 mm, M distinctly smaller. Tibiotarsal articulation reaches the eye. Hand with a trace of webbing, foot webbing 1(0), 2i(1), 2e(0), 3i(1.5), 3e(0), 4i/e(2), 5(0.5). Dorsal skin smooth. Males with a weakly distensible single subgular vocal sac. Dorsally yellowish or dark brown, typically with a white stripe along the upper lip. Ventral surface of hindlimbs, thighs, and webbing red.

Similar species: Several other species such as B. miniatus, B. picturatus and B. majori occur in the same region and have reddish colour on their limbs as well. The two undescribed following species are most similar to B. rhodoscelis and morphological characters for their distinction still need to be identified.
