Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


The following is a general description of specimens assigned to M. femoralis. M 31-37 mm, F 45-55 mm in the types. Tibiotarsal articulation reaching between eye and nostril. Terminal discs of fingers and toes moderately enlarged. Dorsal skin granular. Populations that we preferably assign to M. femoralis are characterized by a rather distinct and large yellow patch in the inguinal region, with the yellow colour sometimes also extending onto the ventral side which otherwise is often rather dark-coloured (Glaw and Vences 2007).
