Description

Eleutherodactylus albipes is a small frog, reaching 33 mm in adult females; the adult males are smaller than the females. The vomerine teeth, behind the choanae, are in a transverse and long series. There is no webbing between the toes, and digital discs are small or absent (Barbour and Shreve 1937; Schwartz and Henderson 1985; Schwartz and Henderson 1991). .

This frog is dark brown to grayish, sometimes with a broad whitish lateral streak. The hind limbs are crossbanded with darker bars, at times indistinctly so. Often there is a dark groin spot. Concealed surfaces of the femur are whitish yellow. Hands and feet are yellowish white, above and below. The venter is whitish yellow, spotted with brown spots and a few small whitish spots (Barbour and Shreve 1937; Schwartz and Henderson 1985; Schwartz and Henderson 1991).

Eleutherodactylus albipes is a member of the Eleutherodactylus dimidiatus group, in the subgenus Euhyas. Related species include Eleutherodactylus maestrensis, E. dimidiatus and E. emiliae (Heinicke et al. 2007).
