M 27-30 mm, F 25-34 mm. A relatively small species with a very short snout and extended foot webbing: 1(0.25), 2i(0.75), 2e(0), 3i(1), 3e(0.25), 4i(1.5), 4e(1.25), 5(0). Distinguished by its partly paired subarticular tubercles from M. pauliani. Both M. madecassus and M. pauliani have a particular iris colour with a central darker part and an increasing number of small golden spots towards the edges.

Similar species: All other species of Brygoomantis are more or less similar, but the lack of vomerine teeth in M. madecassus is diagnostic.
